I am considering the WB RID as my dinghy. I thought it would be fun to sail around the small harbors I frequent with the larger boat. Does anybody have anything to say good or bad about the boat?

I, too, was impressed with the compromise that the Walker Bay RID seems to offer. The durability and rowability of a hard dink, with much of the bouyancy and stability of the inflatable.

I''ll look forward to hearing first-hand experience, too.

The 1/2004 issue of Cruising World has a review of 14 rigid tenders, including the Walker Bay 8 and RID 9.

BTW, I bought the Portabote 10''6" two years ago and I think it''s the best all around boat for the money based on its size, weight, stowability and carrying capacity. It also supports an engine that weighs up to 44 pounds. The 4HP 2-stroke engine I bought for it weighs 38 pounds empty.

The CW review doesn''t include the Portabote 10''6", but they did test the Portabote 12.

~ Happy sails to you ~ _/) ~
