Anyone out there with easy to build Dingy plans?
Watching this one too! Anyone?
I have been wanting to build one of JB Watercraft Designs for some time. They look easy and the cost of plans is reasonable.
The Unicat designs are intriguing.
Hello, I build my dinghy in stich and glue as tender to our Tiki 38. Unfortunately I lost the plans..
We still use this tender, but keep in mind that a rubber dinghy has a much bigger stability per example to get in an out ouf the dinghy from the water. You can not just jump in the dinghy when you use it as tender for a bigger boat, you need to be careful when when there are more then one person to board the boat.
Here is a free one worth a look. In google, search ... dinghy "tender fritz" plans
The full plan is a pdf download from the first result.
Also check out John Welsford's many small boat designs. https://jwboatdesigns.co.nz/wooden-boat-plans/
Hope it helps
Thanks for all the input, much appreciated.
Maybe a dumb question - can one increase existing measurements say by 10% or 200mm to make a dingy bigger?
Or how do i do it - say length of 2.2 stretch to 2.8 and width of 1.1m to 1.4m ???
Thanks for the input
Hmmm. I don't think it's a dumb question but it IS something that would require analysis of the design to ensure there are no unintended consequences. Stability for example.
If you don't get an answer here then try asking on boatdesign.net.
