Re: Suggestions for building a dinghy, please.

Take a look at Uncle Johns boat kits in sulfer La. He has plans and a kit that require you to by the plywood.

I built one at 13.5 feet out of maranti plywood and maple frame.

Take the time estimates for any boat kit and multiply by at least
10 times.

A warm well ventilated outbuilding is mandatory as resin does not setup at less than 70 degrees and it will ruin your lungs.

Send me an email and I will send a picture and link to the kit dealer.
The kit is just a few of the hard to cut parts and instructions.

You will need rotary saw, drill, reciprocating saw, belt sander, Tons of plastic, brushes, and rollers to apply the resin and spar urethane uv protectant.

We must be crazy.
