Re: walker bay vs water tender

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the suggestions. Yesterday I bought a Walker Bay 10 in good condition with oars and stuff for $500. I brought it down to the marina today and used it for the first time. It rows much better than the watertender and seems stable enough. It is heavier than the water tender and more difficult to drag up the beach. One problem is the little wheel in the stern is great for rolling on dry land but terrible for dragging through sand. I'll remove the wheel for next time and see if that makes a difference.

Barry
