Re: Performance with dinghy on the foredeck

Ha, very interesting Jack. That is almost exactly the setup we have on the Womboat for anything up to and including coastal. If we were to head offshore then I think I'd still deflate it though as I said , I'd lash it to the deck to keep the weight forward. My concern with leaving it inflated on deck is a wave getting in under the thing. Maybe not a problem but even coastal you can get a lot of water on deck, in a big storm I'd worry.

The swing arm arrangement is a beaut. Makes launching the outboard so easy.
