Re: looking for dinghy/tender ideas

I had an inflatable, roll up dink for ages. It was second hand when I got it, and finally did nearly two circumnavigation a before it died in the butt, totally and utterly.

The best bit was it really could roll up into nothing and be stowed in a lazarette or on deck. The electric pump whoofed it up in seconds and it was good with a 3.3hp donk on it.

Problem with kayaks and sailing dinks is you can't thrown a load of shopping in them. When I provision for a passage there might be $600 of groceries. You need a propper dink for that not a kayak!

The inflatable floor jobbies are even better.

Remember they won't last as long as a hard bottom... Just 1 1/2 circumnavigations!
