A few years ago, while my wife was at the clinic giving birth to our first son, I build a pram/tender for our boat using stitch and glue plywood. First kid, first home made pram, one great week... I had a lot of fun doing it and when the familly now embark on this pram, I always think about these happy moments.
Now, the kid has grown up a bit (he is 7) and wants to sail. As I have some spare time, I told him we are going to build his first dinghy. I am looking for a modern design/plan for plywood/stitch and glue construction. Looking around, I have found a very nice looking boat: http://www.cantierinordest.com/en/truc-12.aspx. This Truc 12 has got everything we are looking for:
- It is light and can be transported on top of the car,
- It is simple and can be rigged very fast,
- It is has different sails so that my son can learn sailing it and I can have fun with it,
- It has a very nice look.
I would like to know if any of the wooden boat forum members would know where I could find a similar design, adapted to plywood and stich and glue construction method.
