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, sail & rigging, and any hardware that you need right here as well. Or if you prefer, check out the COMPLETE SCOUT PACKAGE with EVERYTHING you need for your build!
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!
