Free plans for making a handy dinghy trestle

Dinghy trestle built to Steve Blackman’s instructions

The Home Built Boat Regatta group includes some pretty handy folks, among them Steve Blackman, who enjoys refurbishing old plywood dinghies. Just now I gather he’s working on a Heron that I gather may be ready for the Lechlade Raid and the Beale Park Thames Boat Show.

A few days ago his instructions for building a trestle appeared online on the HBBR website, and I thought they were so useful I should share them. Trestles like this are useful in boat parks, when painting and also when building in stitch and glue, or traditional American flat-bottomed skiff style.
