Living in a cruising dinghy

Roger Barnes of the Cruising Dinghy Association demonstrates the appeal of dinghy cruising and explains something of how it can be done, though I still don’t think it’s for the faint hearted…

Little Gwennie 50-year-old clinker plywood dinghy

Here’s a photodiary of project undertaken at our friend boatbuilder Alan Thorne’s workshop in the Faversham Creek Trust’s Purifier Building.

Little Gwennie is a little plywood clinker tender built 50 years ago, and the work has been done my Alan’s son Mark. I’d say he had some of his father’s perfectionist tendencies.

eBay: 9ft clinker rowing or sailing dinghy or tender; hull complete, inside to finish

This little dinghy is up for auction on eBay, and is being sold by  the folding, sectional and inflatable dinghy specialist supplier Nestaway, which is run by Ian Thomson.

My thanks to Nic Compton for passing this one along via his Facebook account.
