The "RYE BAY 228" is the Mk IV version of this design as a stitch & tape boat. It is 7' - 6" long with a good 4' beam which makes for a small but spacious boat with an approximate dry weight of 50lb (22kg). It is built in 6mm ply or can be 6mm on the bottom and 4mm sides for a light duty, lightweight boat.
This has been a popular design and was the first of our designs we sold as a complete boat. It has had many uses - as a tender, a work boat, a fishing boat and as a sailing dinghy.
It can take a small outboard motor - 2hp petrol or electric - and has optional built-in buoyancy tanks. The plans now show details for a rowing/motor version and a sailing version.
