Re: Score! *another* dink! :D

there was a guy in the marina who had a walker bay 8, and tok a low-buck apporach to solving the tenderness issue. rather than shell out $800+ for the inflatable collars, he screwed fenders to the hull just below the gunwales. Baisically, three 6" fenders on each side, through bolted with teak blocks as spacers between the fender ears and the hull. it putted around the marina fine wiht a 1.2 hp gamefisher outboard, and rowed better.
