nesting connectors

Recommended Posts

Several times over the years the discussion about connecting nesting dinghies comes up.  Before B&B came out with their UHMW plastic connectors a former contributor to this forum designed his own out of S/S.  While going through my bookmarks I found Garry's link which includes pictures and drawings.  I made mine exactly as Garry designed them and after 10 years they still work perfectly.  It makes assembling the halves in the water (good when you are cruising) very easy, actually, easier than assembling on land.   I like the idea of plastic as even S/S steel rusts, especially when bedded flush and underwater for periods of time.  My dinghy spent 2, 5 month seasons in the water at a dinghy dock and the rust, while superficial looks terrible.  There would probably be less issue for a dinghy stored on land.  Any way, here it is...... https://pbase.com/onceagain/connector_design
