we haven't started building yet since i am slated to stat after we return from AU and NZ which should be around july or so. i do have a mill set to cut the dimensional i will need and we have the ply and epoxy lined up. its just a money making game at this time. this is not my first go round with boat building so things should go pretty well. we are almost done with my fathers 26 foot fishing boat for alaska so the next in the hopper is ours. should be fun.
here is the link to the dingy plans
