Attention boating enthusiasts – is this folding boat the half-forgotten answer to the eternal tender problem?

Tenders tend to be be a nuisance as we all know – the nasty rubber things cost a fortune, take ages to inflate, take up a lot of space on board and row like psychopathic milk jugs, and of course a solid tender is a can be a pain to tow.

So some people might like to consider this folding alternative, which I’ve just spotted. Plans can be downloaded at the Svenson website.

    I built this boat. rows and tracks very well.canvas doesn’t hold up so well compared to modern materials,tends to scrape easily as boat always rests on it.Has a narrow beam so I use a brace that extends about a foot either side,gives good leverage.Will make a mark 2 out of polycarbonate sheeting and modern synthetic canvas.I love this boat,performs well in lakes,rivers and the ocean.
