Re: Inflatable tender for 30' sailboat
A kayak is great to paddle, but hard to get into from a swim ladder and has little load capacity with two aboard.
True. I guess it really depends on what you need the tender for, if you need to go get groceries and transport lots of stuff a long distance, you need the dinghy type with a motor, whereas if you (like us) just want to be able to paddle in to the beach/island/whatever from the anchored boat to hang out, then the kayak will work fine. It also probably helps that the transom on our boat is pretty low.
