Re: Hard vs Soft

It's all about compromises and what works for you. For me I wanted a good rowing dinghy that was lightweight. I bought a used nesting dinghy so i can tow it or store it (nested) on deck behind the mast. It rows beautifully, and I'm happy not to have to deal with an outboard and carrying gasoline on board.

The downside is that it's a pram style and its flattish bow can be noisy (slapping) at anchor.
