Re: Walker Bay RID 310

We have a Walker Bay Odessey with an air floor/ Not the same as the ROB, but quality is similar. We usually keep it on davits but sometimes topwn or stow in on the foredeck. It weighs 72 lbs and has a cargo capacity of 1100 lbs alrge enough for your uses.

I like the WB because the tubes are large than most tenders therfore the stabilty is there and there is little water getting in when riding.

If you need the rib because you will be doing a lot of beach rocky landings..I would get it. If not consider what I have. It deflates wuickly for storage on the foredeck when we travel offshore and cruise and is easily inflated.

As far as lifting to the foredeck use your spinaker halyard atavhed to its bow to lift it over the lifelines and lower down. Much easier.
