CRAYFISH is a 8' long pram bowed yacht tender, built from 2 1/2 sheets of 4mm ply. It is a good introduction to the art of boatbuilding and also a very useful little boat! It can carry three adults and can be fitted with a small sail or outboard. Weight is about 40lbs so its easy to car top or carry on board. We know from personal experience over the last 20 years that its also a lot more durable than an inflatable. It makes an ideal introductory project before starting a larger boat and is really useful once the big boat is finished!
