Boat Selector:


Less than 6' (1,80m) long when nested but almost 11' assembled, this dinghy is not only ideal to store on deck of a larger boat but in the back of a pickup truck or for the winter in a corner of the garage. The two parts are locked together by the removable center seat and secured by a set of simple bolts with wing nuts. She rows well but can also be fitted with the same sprit sail than the D4 and PK78. She can take up to 4 HP: the plans show transom reinforcements for outboard use.
