The construction is epoxy-fiberglass-plywood composite, a stitch and glue composite system designed for efficient and fast building. To put it another way, the hull material is engineered as a fiberglass laminate whereby the plywood is treated as a thick, yet weaker laminate within the fibreglass schedule.
Building the boat is easy. The builder simply assembles the hull as a plywood boat first, then glasses the outside and inside with fiberglass, to produce a strong composite hull without all the time consuming woodwork associated with traditional plywood on frame. Bog, fair, paint then time for the internals. Its that easy

    The "Magnum" 10 as the name suggests, offers you a roomy and tough dinghy, the first in a series of lightweight cartoppers. Perfect for crabbing, fishing, or to just loll the days away, the Magnum 10 is the perfect getaway from it all. With her full forward sections capable of handling a bit of "rough 'n' tumble, generous "flair" to keep you dry and loads of storage compartments, the Magnum 10 provide's excellent stability when fishing or underway. Overall, the Magnum 10 is more than capable to suit your fishing and holiday needs.

The Magnum 10 stitch and glue plywood car-topper has made the average camping trip extraordinary. Being able to fit atop a four wheel drive, the Magnum 10 can turn a camping trip with the family into a great adventure. Perfectly suited for any river, estuary or lake adventures and the perfect camping companion, the Magnum 10's innovative design for stability when fishing and, having a v-shape hull means these boats are able to cope comfortably with choppy waters. With features that include front and rear bench seats, front deck and ample storage space, the Magnum 10 will complete any camping trip, but also expand your adventures to the water.

     The big day finally, arrived, after all the rain and high winds we have had here in Tassie there was a break in the weather in the Sunday morning. Loaded the boat on the trailer and off we went. Since we have had a lot of flood waters we had to clear dead wood and rice grass away to put the mighty MAGNUM in and then went for a row around.
First impressions;
Test 1/ It sits nice and high and relatively easy to row. Bonus.
Test 2/  Mounted the 6hp Johnson on and loaded up with safety gear, boat sat evenly balanced
Test 3/ Started the johno 4th pull after 5 years (not bad), idled around to get the feel of it.
Test 4/ Slowly poured on the throttle and got it up on the plan. Man does it go when you are by yourself. Just enough power for 2; for 3 I would recommend a 10hp
        I am very happy with the MAGNUM after all the effort that went into building it. Even the smaller projects boats can give you a huge amount of satisfaction.
Thank you to Mark for the time in designing the Magnum and to everyone that has given me advice over and good wishes during the build.
SPLASHED! 13/10/2013

Next trip out was back up to Scotland on my own to get some running in hours on the engine and a bit of fishing . After the first 2 hours I opened up the throttle and the Mag planed like dream at 21 kts. To say I was happy would be an understatement. Over the couple of days I was away the weather was awful at times with some quite lumpy water, but the Mag coped with it easily
Cheers Ian .
