Re: 10' Porta Boat For Dinghy?

I just came back from measuring the good ship Nauti Time. As much as I want to make a 10 footer work I have just over 11' from mast to RF, the 10' Porta Bote is 10.8' LOA. This might be too cramped to assemble on deck and then lower over the side. I'm now deeply considering the 8 footer which is actually 8.6' LOA.

Most of the time it will only be the 2 of us anyway, I'll just have to make multiple trips occasionally for guests...or really field test the capacity limit!

Many, many power boats
