Thankyou Barry ,
  the picture is appearing to me as to the past life of this little dinghy. I am trying to track down a sail , thanks to Cocklegat and Craig .
It is plywood planks clinker fashion , never seen ply used like this before . I suppose it keeps it very lightweight .The rub strip and rowlocks need putting on and a good rubdown and revarnish .

The Bittern Class dingy was of this type of construction, ply and glued 'lands'  These boats by Landamores were glued together using Cascamite which over the years tends to fail.  This need not be fatal! The one I owned had this problem but we managed to re-glue using more modern equivalents.  The advantage of the method of construction was to provide a light weight boat which was economical to build.  In the case of the Gunter rigged Bittern, built for Norfolk County as a schools training boat, it provided a very competitive fast boat. A delight to sail.
Small boats of this size, particular if they are not of a 'class' are not particularly economic to rebuild...................Not worth a great deal...but that is hardly the point. A good small light weight dingy is a nice thing to own.

Lots of dinghy built using this method, a new Barrow boat is approx £3000.

In a nutshell
