seems like you'd give up just a bit of performance under sail, to me...

As for a Big A$$ dinghy crammed into a little boat, I'm fix'n to buy the 18' kaboat as my cruising dink. I saw a guy with the black one zinging through an anchorage a few years ago and it's been on my wish list ever since. Fit's in a bag and puts together quick. For many years I cruised with 2 old beat up windsurfer boards on either side of me cabin top. This was decades before the paddle board craze. They are half the width of a paddle board, and super stable with the little keel thing down, and they are free usually. I would sit on it and Kayak paddle around. They also made it easy to cram stuff like jerry cans between them and the cabin top.
