Meet the Scout, a great sailing dinghy -- and rewarding project for a first-time boatbuilder! 

The Scout is a wide, stable, 10-foot boat that's a blast to sail and row. Weighs only ~70 pounds and makes a great tender, yet has enough dry stowage below deck to take on a beach camping trip of its own. The offset daggerboard makes an open footwell so you can even sleep aboard! 

The Scout is available as a CNC plywood-and-foam kit exclusively here at Duckworks. You can also grab the epoxy/fiberglass kit, rigging kit, sail and any hardware that you need right here as well. Check out the YouTube video below for a demo of the Scout on the water, and an interview with a home builder who brought this kit boat to life!
