Walker Bay RID..Jeff????

I just picked up the Walker Bay 8'' dingy and added a 3.5 2-stroke outboard.

It rows great, motors even better and I can pick the boat up over my head.

The only bad thing I can say about it is this;

Its material is easily gouged and scratches. The boat gets scratches and cuts if it grinds on anything hard and rough.
Also because the plastic is so light and flexible I would not put anything larger that the rated outboard horse power.

Overall I would say this is a great lighwieght and cheap way to go for a dingy.

Oh yea, it tows nice too.

Capt. Chuck
