I want to build a small tender to get the 300 yards or so out to my mooring. (Sheltered water) It is purely to transport bodies and gear out to the boat so wants to be a stable work horse. This poor creature will have a have a hard life and I donít expect it to last forever just 3 or 4years. It will be bumped into a concrete slip at high tide and be dragged up the rocky shore at low tide. It will be rolled upside down on a hard gravel surface and abandoned until next use, unless it is stolen before that.
This apple pie http://www.boatdesign.com/applepie/index.htm looks Ideal has anybody got anyother suggestions or know any problems with this design?
Iím not looking to build a thing of beauty or spend a fortune. Iím thinking of beefing it up to 3/8 or Ĺ or inch ply and will go and buy a couple of sheets of WBP or even shuttering ply and stick it together with polyester resin and tape (because it seems a waste of epoxy) The rest will be made from off cuts of Larch left lying about my shed. I will paint it in whatever household paint is lying about or use a tin of bitumen paint.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
