Re: [Bolger4Sale] dingy.how big
- Dear Readers:
Sorry about the post.
holds 4 adults
Located Toledo area - by the airport
But, it is not light and would say it weighs 125 lbs.
or so. I used 3/8" ply and the ash timbers weight
more. However, I remember making that boat and those
ash frames would literally smoke a drill bit. That
stuff is hard to bevel with anything but a chain saw.
As a result, I think you could drop this boat in the
water from a 3 story building and it would be OK.
