Re: Dinghy Talk
After having two home made prams, and then, an inflatable, and deciding it didn't work for me, I bought a 20 year old Boston Whaler 11 foot tender for $1000.
Pros: It really appears to be absolutely indestructible (you could machine gun it and it would still float). You can row it easily. It tows easily. Runs 30 knots with a 25 hp on it. It is unbelievably stable, even when loaded down.
Cons: It is heavy, and weighs 280 pounds.
On the northern Gulf of Mexico.
