Multi-purpose, they can be rowed, motored or sailed and are light enough for one person to lift on and off the family car or yacht. Simple stitch and glue construction, they can be built with the minimum of tools, no previous boatbuilding experience and in very little space. Either one can be the ideal quality time project for a youngster with Dad's assistance or Dad with Junior's help. Built-in flotation compartments and a simple sail plan make them great for learning to sail, whatever your age. The first of the two designs, the DIXI DINGHY, was commissioned as a sailing yacht tender for very simple construction in stitch and glue plywood.


As a sailing fun boat she is highly manoeuvreable and nippy with an adult or two children. After the DIXI DINGHY was featured as a kit boat in a local newspaper, THE ARGUS, I was commissioned to design a larger sister for a series feature in the same newspaper.
The ARGIE 10 can be cut as a complete boat from three sheets of 6mm plywood, including bouyancy compartments fore, aft and amidships as well as rudder and daggerboard.
Hardcopy plans include fully dimensioned panel cutting diagrams, hull sections, construction details, sail plan, spar details, building instructions and materials list. Electronic plans for the Argie 10, supplied by email or on disk, are in web page format and will open in the same way as a web page in Internet Explorer or other web browser, from which it can be printed on your system printer.


Finished hull weights are 22kg (48lb) for the DIXI DINGHY and 29kg (64lb) for the ARGIE 10.
You can also open the individual graphics files (gif format) in PhotoDraw or most other graphics programs, to print them at the largest size that your printer will handle.
