Part of the decision to go for a bigger boat was to be able to get a bigger dinghy on deck that will row much better than the 8 footer on Snow petrel. I can fit a 12 footer onto Snow Petrel II.
Anyway, A good friend was going to build an Auk for his beautiful atkins cutter. I couldn't help myself designing a 8.5x4 foot rowing dinghy that was more suited to him.
Here's the result. I called it Galifreya to go with his yacht Galifrey.
The lines plan, the waterline shown is roughly with two light to medium weight people onboard and no gear. It was not a quick and easy dinghy to build, but it is within the capabilities of most people. I generated offsets for the hull planks which where mostly pretty close, except at the bottom of the bow, where they were about 10mm off. It is 6mm ply over bulkheads and temporary stations.
