Please find attached my completed D4 dinghy which was finished in early September of 2001. It was constructed as both a sailing version and rowing version. It was originally intended as a tender for our larger Hunter 23 sailboat but instead found itself more fun as a evening use sail boat on our local river. It has proven very stable and I do not hesitate to take it out in strong winds.

The Boat was built from the free plans available in the web. To provide better abrasion resistance, the complete hull was covered with fiberglass.

I am enjoying your website a lot. Please keep up the great work.
