Build this 11’2″ dinghy following the step-by-step instructions of boatbuilding Eric Dow. The Shellback Dinghy is a modern classic that rows, sails and tows beautifully. She has a traditional bow, a narrow rockered bottom and a sweet transom that lifts well out of the water. This is engineered for the amateur builder. If you are considering building from our kit, then read this book a time or two and your decision will be all the easier. If you decide to build, you will need to order boatbuilding plans. You cannot build straight from the book.
