Re: back up dinghy?

I' fix'n to by one of those 16 foot Kaboats as a back up. Fit's in a bag in my aft laz. I can pull it out, pump it up and move some serious weight and people around.

Re: back up dinghy?

Our "backup dinghy" is an inflatable kayak. Rather than having two dinghies - i.e., two things that do the same function, with the kayak we get the security & flexibility advantages of having a second "family car" but some different options for playing.

Re: back up dinghy?

Thank you for the great replies. I sold the dinghy at a boater's swap meet last weekend. Our back up dinghy will be a kayak and SUP paddleboard.

Thanks again, Bill

Re: back up dinghy?

How about a small dinghy sailboat? Not just as backup but for the kids to sail around in an anchorage. Anyone have a recommendation on an easy/small sailboat to carry or tow? I'm about to buy a 45-48' boat and mostly Chesapeake with some Caribbean sailing in the forecast. Any insight appreciated, thanks.
