Boat building bug bights

I've decided that the little dinghy I built a couple of years ago is not really suited as a tender for a number of reasons, so I'm selling it to free up space to build a new one. The dinghy is now on ebay if anyone is interested.

The one I am planning to build is a Sam Devlin "Micro Petrel". I bought the plans yesterday (you can just download them in PDF format) and it looks like something I can manage.This will still be 8ft long only, but the pram bow will give more capacity. I hope it will also be easier to load onto a roof rack single handed and I will use proper marine plywood this time.
