This design is for a simple but very practical dinghy. It is based on a pram built some years ago in the Caribbean and that gave many years of reliable service. The requirements were typical of a dinghy for a long range cruising boat: must fit on deck, be easy to launch and retrieve, stable, must row well in a chop, have a capacity of 2 or 3 persons. It will also take a small outboard and a sail.
