Re: Porta-Bote Stability?

i have a 10' 8" porta bote it is very stable because the beam is 5'. i use a 4 HP outboard. it folds flat along the lifelines on my 30 ft nimble sloop. the seats & oars are stowed down in the cockpit locker. i have a clear foredeck & assemble it there. i hoist it on end with the spinnaker halyard & put it over the side.
