Hard Dinghys out there?

Walker Bay boats are available in both 8'' and 10'' versions,and are much less expensive than either inflatables or fiberglass boats. We''ve used a 10'' one for 3 years now and really like it. It has good load carrying ability, is stable, and can actually be rowed, though we use a small 3hp outboard most of the time. Contrary to what a previous post said, the molded plastic is much, much more durable than fiberglass (I know,I''ve had several glass dinghies). It can''t crack, it can be dragged across rocky beaches with no damage, and it can be left in the water for (relatively) long periods without fouling. They look good, too.
