Designer Joey Ruiter has come up with something called the “Tinnie Boat,” essentially a 10 side-by-side vessel made of powder-coated aluminum.
Utilizing aluminum keeps the Tinnie 10, which is an isosceles triangle, extremely lightweight at only 173 pounds.
The floor of the boat features natural white oak plank flooring, so it feels as if you are stepping into a treehouse as a passenger, one that has a 6 hp 4-stroke or electric motor.
The Tinnie 10 can only hold two people, but that’s just fine to Ruiter who sees his design as the future to some kind of triangle boat racing class.
I’m not sure his idea will ever come to fruition as far as mainstream dingy racing is concerned, but small towns have been holding these types of races for years and would probably love to incorporate a new type of boat into their contests.
