The frame drawings of this dinghy were found in a book published in 1957, that’s why “Dinghy ’57”. This is an adaptation of those drawings to stitch and glue construction.

The “Dinghy-57″ measures 7’10” x 3’4″. She displaces about 1100 lbs just before flooding. At 250 lbs displacement, that is, one person, her freeboard is 9″. The freeboard is 6″ at 480 lbs displacement. The original drawing says “she carries two adults or three children”.
