> Of course there are plenty of Bolger V-bottom designs. It's a question of what is a dinghy, and what isn't. The Thomaston Galley isn't, I guess. There was the design that was meant as a lifeboat for Resolution: Crystal, IIRC. That's a tender, but I guess not quite a dinghy. Poohsticks can be used as a dinghy. The Dart dinghy isn't a tender.
