Re: [bolger] Elegant Punt
- Very easy boat to build. I built mine as a throwaway dinghy, if I get
two seasons out of it I will be way ahead. I used PL Premium and
staples, the only thing screwed in is the bottom strips. No epoxy, no
fiberglass. I don't use AC plywood anymore but I did on this one because
of the basic philosophy. $60 invested, leftover paint from the local
store, about 25 hrs of time.
