>>> Deckster – the boat with a hole in it

Wooden Widget has released plans for a new, nifty design. Instead of a "folding" dinghy this time, we have a dinghy that you can remove the bow of and nestle it around your mast or other obstacle.

There is a provision to install a Hobie Mirage drive. This is a "pedal" setup that moves two flexible fins below the water. You stay dry (or at least your feet don’t go in the water), but the boat moves.

Looks slick, although the drive is a bit pricey. Plans are very reasonable and from my experience on my previous build, are very detailed and good.
