Building a Nesting Dinghy

During the winter of 2009-2010 I received a unique commission to build a nesting dinghy.  Tim and Sarah own a 31 foot cruising sailboat and needed a good dinghy to replace their inflatable, but they had limited deck space on which to store it.  With Tim’s help I built a B&B Yacht Designs Spindrift 9N, a nine foot dinghy which breaks down into two nesting sections who’s total length is only five feet, short enough to store on their boat.

Sometimes it takes a lot of clamps to build a boat!

More detailed pictures to soon as I can pry it out of Tim and Sarah's hands!
