Re: Hard vs Soft

+1 for the nesting dinghy. I'm going to build Danny Green's Chameleon nesting dinghy. It weighs about 75lbs (each piece about 35lbs) and can easily be manhandled on deck by one person. It also takes up little room on deck and I'll store mine behind the mast. I want something rugged and that can be dragged up on a beach and that rows well. I enjoy rowing and I don't want an outboard and all the hassles that go with it. I also want something more rugged and durable than an inflatable and lighter than a RIB (both of which don't row well anyway).
