Thibault Penven’s folding boat, faster to assemble than an inflatable dinghy and less cumbersome (it can be worn like a backpack). The hull consists of a series of fiberglass sheets covered with heat-welded plastic tarpaulin, the boat unfolds and a series of metal rods are strung along its edges to give it shape. The bench functions as the core and keeps the whole thing stable by acting as cross-bracing for the flimsy shell.
