Re: Final Dinghy Choice - does this make sense?

All the dinghys at the dinghy dock in the photo shows a "Poll of choice",- 'sure are a lot of RIB's. I've have a 5hp 4stroke on my Carribe 10L so I'm never on a plane. 'not really very heavy without the double hull. I have big stainless steel 2.5" diameter davits whipped up in a friends garage for zero bucks beyond the raw stock pipe. For me it's all a choice of stability and capacity. I can put two bicycles, laundry and groceries aboard with my wife and dog and myself and I can perch my 200lbs on the edge when it's empty. I think this is why you see so many RIB's at the dinghy docks, but there's nothing wrong with other choices that fit other's needs!
