Re: 10' Porta Boat For Dinghy?

I use an 8' porta-bote as a dinghy for my 28' S2 so a 10' one is prob about right for your 32' boat. The 8' rows very well even with 3 adult men aboard. It is easy to hoist aboard, It is easy to assemble dissassemble on deck. It stows along the lifelines.
This used porta-bote bought for $150 is dinghy experiment #5 after an inflatable, a hardshell nautilus, an inflatable kayak, a 2-paw 9 nesting dinghy so I have plenty of basis for comparison. I have NOT used a motor with any of them but your 10' will prob work well.
