lightest scantlings for a s&g tender
Well I went and did it. Found a 25 foot plastic boat at a price that I could never beat by building it myself. Logic must prevail sometimes...Good news is, I need a dinghy for it. An 8' inflatable weighs about 60#. Well I want to build a nymph (because I have the plans already) , I want it to weigh less than the inflatable. I was thinking to build it of 4mm okoume sheathes in 6 oz glass. Is this going to be stiff enough for a tender that will be rowed, sometimes heavily loaded?
