The Optimist dinghy kit

We have done many of  these during our last twelve years or so.

The boat in the first picture was built from one of our kits.

I think its now in Australia?

The builders jig is your starting point, the wood/epoxy boat has to have a jig,  this is a great idea anyway as it speeds up the building process.

The floor or bottom of the boat is the first panel to be fitted into the jig.

The sides, bow and transom follow, fitting the panels is a step by step process.

This amount of clamps is nice to have but you  can manage with a lot fewer clamps.

We supply a very documented builders instruction guide, it has 27 pages in it with  lots of build pictures and a step by step explanation of what to do.
