The Winchelsea 2.2 is available as a kit and as DIY plans. It is a little smaller than the Winchelsea 8 and the planks can be cut from a standard sheet of 2.44m x 1.22m plywood - no scarfing required. It is different from its larger sister as it does not have a long keel which is replaced by a flat keel plank onto which a length of timber and a skeg are fitted. The open edge of the stem is capped with thin strips of wood that are carefully bent round to join at the keel. The flat keel plank makes for an easier build but it is still built in the same way - over a mould. However, it could be built using stitch & tape if you don’t mind the stitch holes. If you’re painting your hull inside and out, this is not a problem but, if you want to varnish your hull then I wouldn’t use it.

This dinghy will take up to a 30lb thrust electric outboard with the battery box under the centre thwart. These lightweight dinghies are easily driven and do not require a lot of power to drive them. A 1hp petrol outboard is the maximum power size engine for this dinghy weighing between 9 and 12kg.

Fitting engines to small, lightweight dinghies does require, if solo, sitting further forward. With crew etc. weight will need to distributed.
