DYNO Mite is intended for a short or long shaft transom mounted outboard motor set in a self bailing motorwell. The hull features a generous 12 degree vee bottom with built in chine flats, a.k.a. spray rails, deflectors, and lift strakes. Interior longitudinal reinforcement is added after the hull is formed and consistS of wide plywood laminations topped with vertical members. They're easy to spring in place, no shaping required and it's a proven strong system that reinforces the monocoque hull structure. And standard 4' x 8' plywood panels are used throughout; only three panels of 1/4" x 4' x 8' plywood will plank the entire boat.
Dyno Mite is easy to build, thanks to the simplified Stitch and Glue building method. Full size patterns are furnished for virtually every contoured part in the boat including the bottom and side planking. The patterned parts are duplicated to the plywood panels, cut to shape, bent around a single form, stitched together, and joints bonded with fillets and fiberglass laminations. The pre-cut plywood planking forms the hull shape automatically without fairing or shaping. You'll be surprised how quickly the hull takes shape. The construction is not complex and this is an excellent first time boatbuilding project.
The detailed plans include complete progressive instructions with Bill of Materials, what fasteners to use at each junction and the proper seam bonding laminates.
