The 8ft version of the Clinker Stem Dinghy is priced same as our 8ft Pram dinghy - one or two options are different, please contact us to clarify if you wish to order an 8ft Stem - see details in price list on link above.
Please also read the following additional information explaining options etc.
White simulated clinker glassfibre hull and buoyancy tanks with grey interior. Iroko gunwhales, thwarts and knees. Plastic rowlocks. Stainless bow mooring eye.
The following options can be added to the standard boat, or the money-saving package deals as detailed on price list.
- 36sqft Standing Lugsail Rig. Loose-footed lugsail with varnished wood mast and 7ft 6" yard, plywood daggerboard and moulded case, pivoting rudder.
- 44sqft Balanced Lugsail Rig. As above with larger sail, plus boom with extra mainsheet block; reef and window in sail; 3:1 downhaul purchase.
- Swap Wooden Spars for Aluminium. Doesn't look as nice but no varnishing required and a lower cost option.
- Swap Wooden Spars for Carbon. Black carbon fibre tubes with sealed ends, about 5kg lighter than wood or aluminium option. Cutting 5kg out aloft makes a difference to heeling forces etc, and, with that amount of buoyancy aloft, in the unlikely event you capsize to 90 degrees you are very unlikely then to get the boat to go beyond that point. And perhaps best of all the bag with all the rig in it ends up 5kg lighter too!
- Rig Ready. Daggerboard case/mast support mouldings built in, so you can add rest of rig later if you wish
- Coloured "sheer strake" (conventionally just the top plank but we think looks best with top two planks), in navy, maroon, or green. Looks great, particularly with rest of hull in cream, and all-cream interior.
- Keel wear strip in brass, protects bottom of boat.
- Bilge keels/handles on bottom of stern section for easier handling and convenient tiedown points when stored upside down, also help keep boat upright on slipway etc.
- Rubber fendering around gunwhales. We fit a high quality two-part fender with removable insert for access to screw fixings etc.
- Chrome rowlocks, upgrade from standard plastic.
- Teak-decked buoyancy tanks. Purely for looks, but they do look fantastic! £450.
- Folding cleats, fitted at bow and/or stern to larger "knees", fold flush with top of gunwhales. Everyone loves them, they look great, and do prevent snagging of sail control lines etc.
- Transom wheels. Pair of stainless steel fold up/removable wheels on rubber tyres, for easy movement on slipways, jetties etc. We use a decent size wheel with inflatable tyre, not 2" castors as fitted by some boatbuilders...
- Towbar platform carrying base (click here Towbar platform). No need for a trailer, and much easier to load than a roof rack, especially singlehanded. Fits standard towbar, includes boat adapter and ratchet straps.
- Spares Pack. Two spare bolts with both types of washer (nylon and rubber),
plus one spare chrome rowlock.
The Tohatsu 2.5 and Torqeedo 503 are perfectly adequate for our stem dinghies but some people go for the more powerful versions - 3.5/1003 - as there is no weight penalty of any significance. More information on outboards here: Petrol & Electric Outboards
