Dinky the dinghy.
Meet Dinky, a shrunken down frameless interpretation of Phil Bolgers Tortoise. 4 inches less beamy. (32 inches wide...) and an 1 1/4 shorter than the plans call for. Two pieces of 5/8ths ply on each end as sacrificial transoms, a piece of cardboard between the real transom and the heavy ply. A hand full of 32 inch long scrap nailed in with finish nails held her form until the glue set up.
Going to take her down and set her on the cabin top of Pylasteki and get some perspective of a dinghy like object, and how big a hard dinghy will fit!
Have a little bit of glassing and painting to do before the dunking of Dinky...
Rob, Thanks for the help tacking on the bottom.
