Walker Bay RID..Jeff????
Blue Water Sailing just did a piece on the WB RID in their "new and noteworthy" column. The author really liked it. I emailed them with another question about it and the author responded: I wanted to know about ease of boarding from the water, as we''ll be cruiisng in the tropics with a 7 year old. He said, eassy, like an inflatable.
It seems really good. Yeah, it''s ugly, but so is an inflatable. We need something that, primarily, can carry the 3 of us and laundry and groceries without getting swamped...plus rown well if the engine conks and we need to set an anchor in rough seas, plus, it sure would be nice for my daughter to learn to sail in a little boat, or to be able to save the gas and sail to town sometimes (or row!).... it really seems to have it all. If we can find deckspace for it, I think we''re gonna do it. I really don''t care about having a planing speed machine.....
