Four identical boats were created to suit a design brief given to me by a team producing an immersive theatrical performance.
The important aspects to designing this was to maintain the character of a classic wooden dingy whilst providing a construction model that was simple and economical to build.
A skeletal structure was made from CNC prepared 18mm spruce ply.
The framework was then clad in strips of 9mm hardwood ply and trimmed to fit. This construction model allowed just two carpenters to build the four boats in under 3days
A simple section that could be slot on and off was fmost convenient method to provide wheelchair access during a live performance.
