End the dinghy dilemma

"One solution is to customize your own dinghy to fit the available deck space aboard your cruiser. With new materials and techniques, even amateur carpenters with five thumbs can manage a fairly serviceable and completely watertight dinghy. Thanks to epoxy and fiberglass cloth, it should prove fairly durable, too, given normal usage. And those assorted sticky-goos and cloth coverings allow you to slide by with something far short of the perfect bevel. Three or four winter weekends in the basement with a minimal tool kit (that should include a circular saw and an electric drill for speed's sake) will produce a very serviceable custom-made plywood dinghy."
