Re: Motor vs Rowing inflatable dinghy...

Good for you. You don't need a motor on a hard dinghy. We've rowed for decades of coastal sailing(from Candada to the Bahamas).

It's good excercise(rowers arms don't do the double wave), it's a simple system that doesn't break(check your locks and oars regularly), it's clean and green and best of all, rowing is a pleasant experience on the water, you can't get with a motor.
