A couple more.

Things i would do differently.... I plan on going back and adding the sailing features. I think I would get a kick out of a little sailing dink. I will also rebuild the gunwale. It is splitting open because the three strips of wood didnt have enough clamping pressure and was not distributed evenly, I expect anyway.

Re: I Want to Build a Nesting Dinghy

I also built the b&b minipaw (under 6'). For my first stitch and glue it was an easy build, with some helpful advice from the forum! And I had plans to build the nesting two-paw, but found one for sale unfinished. I'm in the process of
adding the sailing rig, mast, rudder, daggerboard etc.. I will say that both rowed very well and impressed with the mini's ability to easily haul two people. Both are lightweight. Plan on using both dinghy's on my 32 footer for a trip around Vancouver Island this summer.

Its not what I know, but who I know that knows.
