I have been looking for the articles you have done on your aluminium dinghy.
Re the build and the reasoning.
One I remember was when you decided to cut the bow off to allow pushing etc.
If you could direct me to them it would be much appreciated.
If you use the website search function you can look for any topic.
The articles you want are (I think) https://setsail.com/dinghy-tent-awning/ and https://setsail.com/s_logs-dashew-dashew318/
