Re: New in Narragansett Bay

Really agree 100% should have liferaft aboard but trying to be realistic the chances of a 30 fter that will most likely be cruising bays and sounds will not have one aboard.
But your right about time/issues to get dink in the water however in certain conditions
a dinghy just might keep one out of the water instead of in the water long enough
to make the difference. True not good in rough seas but maybe in the more likely
case a holing or such. Would think one would not put out with a gail forcast for the afternoon.
