Re: Performance with dinghy on the foredeck

Problem with inflatables particularly with a small boat is still stowage. Its not as if they weigh next to nothing and inflating them is time consuming unless you have a heavy duty pump. At sea, sure we'd deflate ours though still probably lash it down to the deck. Compared to a rigid they are also pretty expensive.
