Re: Walker Bay Dinghy


My water tender dink was stolen and I replaced it with a walker bay 10. My oday is on a mooring and I use the dink to get from beach to boat and back again. I am on my 4th dink: an 8 foot fiberglass sumner dink that I rebuilt, an older water tender 9.4, a new water trender w cathedral hull and now the walker bay.

The web rows the best and holds a lot of people and gear. It is reasonably stable. But it's heavy. I have to drag my dink up a sandy beach to store in a rack and the wb is a real pain to drag. The water tender was much lighter and easier to drag.
