Little Breton

Hello from Downunder.

I found Gavin Atkins Little Breton plans on Duckworksbbs and built the dinghy in April 2005 as a tender for my 25 foot yacht. It has worked out well. However, I added a skeg to improve directional control and left out the internal frames to reduce bulk and weight - she weighs about 30kg all up. She rows and tows well (eg carried my 80kg self and 90kg of marine batteries without concern).

Thanks for publishing the plans. I have enclosed several photos for information.
