I thought it would be best to become familiar with the core material I'd selected for Galene's new transom before jumping in with both feet. Building a dinghy provided the learning opportunity. It also allowed me to design a dink that would become an integral part of the deck layout of the mothership. This little boat is loosely based on Bruce Bingham's Trinka.
