Dinghy fantasy

Recommended Posts

I’d like to see some testing numbers for puzzle  joints vs scarfing. Scarfing is actually extremely easy using a simple home made jig for your power planer, and makes a joint that is almost perfect with respect to maintaining the plywood’s bending strength in all directions. 

The last dinghy I did I simple scarfed two 2.5*1.55 sheets together end to end and cut all the planks from it.

Yes but Youtube post is the firsthand experience of a cruising couple who have been using a home-made Spindrift for several years - including the pros & cons. The whole video is all about the Spindrift.
