Mark in California built this very smart little
Origami. White on the outside but varnished within. With it's 2.5 hp motor

'The dinghies work very well
and are very stable - so stable,
that we prefer to stand up when
using them, rather than sitting
rowing in the normal way!
I can easily carry both dinghies
on the roof rack of my small
family car. Brilliant!'
