It's interesting alright. I own and use one as my tender (and hopefully never) as my life raft. While I think they're a great liferaft and a decent tender, the joy of sailing them is modest at best. Therefore as a "sailing dinghy" to further the joy of sailing, I think you can do better.


I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
