Dinghys and where to put them?
I got a couple of questions for off shore sailors.
I have seen the dinghy(D) hanging from arches from the rear of the boat. Some without motors, and some with.
How much wind is that D going to catch?
Is it realistic to keep the motor on the D?
Put the motor on the rail?
In another post I read where someone was told they had a 2 year D vs what a real cruisers buy which is a quality D that will last indefinitely.
What are some of the quality D?
Inflatable vs Solid Design?
I have seen some fiberglass cats, any opinions?
Thanks for your thoughts.
