Been talking to Clipper

we are thinking about doing something similar to the PT11 

he wants the nesting and I’m keen on the fixed

get the panels cut then do the rest ourselves 

set them up so they take a laser radial rig

Since we moved aboard I have spent 3 years fantasizing about a hard dinghy for rowing and sailing. If it would take the 4hp outboard that would be a bonus but is not mission critical. Sailing and rowi

If you've got the design sorted, I think it is straight forward cutting the panels yourself. Pencil lines marked with a curvy piece of wood, jigsaw then block plane down to the lines. The trick is getting the design right so you can get the 3D shape of the boat onto 2D (flat) panels and it all fits together. But if you do the design in a CAD platform, it is also straight forward to then get them cut out. Should make tricky details easier like getting the stem just right.

I really don't think it can be that hard designing a small boat, its just generally easier to buy plans because someone has already done that work. Be interesting to hear how you get on.

Clipper has some crowd that cut the last one he did for a bottle of rum, he said it saved heaps of sanding as panels came out spot on.

Just need the cad plans now, if we did a few would really help with sourcing materials etc.

Interested in how the panels are joined if the dinghy s more than a ply sheet long, if you want 6mm ply do you cut the panels from 3mm and stagger the join and glue the two to make 6mm ?

or just join on a bulkhead and glass together with a beveled edge ?

I agree re plans. I have bought 2 sets of plans and built 2 dinghies before. No matter what they cost, they are prob good value compared to doing it yourself. For me, there arn’t plans available for a sleek looking, nesting, sailing dinghy. I love the PT11, but that is a no go as either a kit or plans. I was. Very tempted by the woods duo, but it is just a bit basic/ugly for my tastes. Seems very close to what i was after though.

Maybe need to talk to Itgotknotme, if he brings in heavy stuff from the US there could be lots of room above it for some PT11 kits in the container ?

We all seem to be agreed that the PT is the best looking design to date.
