Re: Towing vs carrying a Rib on board

I had an 8 foot inflatable that I could partially deflate and lash to the foredeck of my cutter rig. Had it flip while towing when the winds piped up to 35 -40 kt. Not good for the outboard! I use an 11 1/2 foot hard dink now for coastal and will use a deflated inflatable when I go offshore. Tired of patching the inflatable.
