A classic roll-up dinghy is back by popular demand.

Classic affordable roll-up dinghy combining a rigid plywood transom and a slatted floor system for stiffness, stows in roughly the same small space as a traditional fabric-only inflatable. Many prefer this dinghy to the so-called "doughnut" boats because it adds significant rigidity underfoot when boarding, unlike boats with fabric floors.
