I just completed building a delightful 12 foot ply dingy. I followed the information from the free plans and it was a real pleasure to knock up. This design is an easy row and power.
With an 8hp o/b, 30.5 klm/hr (18 Knots) just me, 27kph 2 on board and 24.5 3 up. Took 64 hours to build (a few hours every 2nd day), weighs 40kg and cost less than $200 all up excluding paint.
Probably worth having a look at as a build option. Last year I built Ian Wallace's Black skiff and it took me twice as long to build, rows a treat but has no power option. cheers !2947

Looks great.
Can you tell me where you got the plans. I looked online but the plans don't seem to be available anymore. I downloaded the plans years ago but seem to have misplaced them.

Do you have any more photos
