Thread: Dingy done on time.....

    Dingy done on time.....

    My little project finished with a couple of weeks spare before the start of the duck season, I did post some time back about steaming white oak for keel runners.

    We glass fibered some black water pipe around the outside, also I made the rowlock holders out of 316 stainless with bronze bushes as the rowlocks I needed for the oars came up smaller than I thought.

    A coat of grey and my poor attempt of camo lol

    A friend kindly donated 2 pairs of oars also a pick anchor, it fits a treat in my Ranger buck with the tailgate down.

    My 75.00 investment in a pram dingy should let me get on and off the marsh with out the long wait to cross the mud, my plan is to access some the creaks which are out of reach and the duck all seem to lay up in!!

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    You can always tell an Essex Boy, just you cant tell him much...

    An hour in the field is worth a week of typing trash.....

    Very handy!
    I grew up in the marshy regions of NE Essex, and I've lost count of the number of little plywood stitch-and-tape prams we built as kids. Great fun at minimal expense.

    I thought the paint job quite effective.
