I remember some Bolger article in MAIB years ago, about a plywood "box" with some sophistication, designed to replace function of typical rigid inflatable as hung from davits of larger cruising sailboats.
Anybody have details on such a project?
lightweight, easily beachable, suitable for 10-15hp for planing two or more occupants, not more than say 10' long... rowing not a high priority (only for emergency when the outboard is balky)
"Bee" comes to mind, but it was bigger, and with more compartments, than that study in simplicity. Was such a dinghy ever designed with built-in WHEELS, for easier re-launch when the tide goes out and leaves dinghy stranded?
Might be interested to hang a Bolger "box" from my tupperware cruising sailboat... Maybe Susan can advise the perfect set of plans to order...
