we have now 2500 miles on sail cruising this summer---we donot tow dink--we keep on foredeck....my formosa i can keep on foredeck or abaft mast --i can keep a kayak and a hard dink as well on deck in formosa---lol---but then i have the space and the weight of boat to be able to do that--i will not criuise with a rigid--they weigh too much--a 9' caribe is 145 pounds without engine----i use now a soft rollup with hard transom and a 3 1/2 hp engine----2 stroke.....is perfect for cruising and independence--i donot need to plane with guests in my dink--
