With the Polliwog, it is our intention to offer the amateur builder the opportunity to build a lightweight and strong dinghy or tender. Polliwog's performance is crisp, clean and efficient - you won't be disappointed. Building the Polliwog can be a wonderful family project or build one with a friend. A minimum of tools are required; plywood scarfing and building molds are not required. Using the latest stitch-and-glue technology, when finished, you have a great boat in need of minimal annual maintenance.
Scan the enclosed materials list and you'll see this is a quick and thrifty project you can complete in just a few hours with results you can be proud of. -- Sam Devlin
