FyneFour Sailing Dinghy

A recently completed Fyne Four sailing dinghy.  A superb example of the boat.

Re: FyneFour Sailing Dinghy

How much of this lovely vessel is standard kit and how much customised?

Re: FyneFour Sailing Dinghy

Like many people this builder has added to the standard hull kit.  The parts that he has added are as follows:

The dark wood trim over the joint between the top two panels on the inside of the boat.
The wooden hook for hanging the sheet onto the aft of the centreboard case.
The wooden trim on the front of the side seats
The wooden trim on the outside of the top panel near the bow
The false bow piece (the kit has the two side panels coming together at the bow)

He has not used the broken inwales which are in the kit.  This boat has also been rigged for single handed sailing.

Re: FyneFour Sailing Dinghy

Lovely looking boat. I noticed that the boat is on a combi trailer.  Is it ok to transport the FyneFour on a combi trailer? (Just wondering if the lack of support at the stern is a problem.)  Also does anyone know the make of the combi trailer?

Thanks
Rupert

Re: FyneFour Sailing Dinghy

I do not know what the make of the trailer is but shall see if I can find out. 

I have never used a combi trailer for this boat since we find it light enough for two people to pick up and put in the water.  Other people simply roll the road trailer in.  However, I suspect that the boat will be fine.  The trick is to stop it bouncing.
