It's still available and now listed on Craiglist (click here) at a higher price, but I'll give Cruiserforum the better price.
And Sailnet the second best price.

Re: Performance with dinghy on the foredeck

dang... I was trying to figure out why I couldn't see this thread on my Cruiserforums User Control Panel. I feel like the husband that gets caught with lipstick on the collar!

Crew performance is affected by having something to work around on the foredeck.

I do not want to worry about towing a tender in following seas. We get the tender on deck before heading into bluewater.
My experience too. Towing, we take off a solid knot. Also run the risk of losing her. Towing a tender at sea is precarious.

Positive of keeping her inflated is she can act as a life raft.

Re: Performance with dinghy on the foredeck

Have a look at Danny Greene's "Chameleon" nesting dinghy as well. It's about 10ft long and nests in a small package just over 5ft long. Perhaps you could store it on deck between the mast and dodger where it won't interfere with jib sheets and working on the foredeck. There is a good article in Good Old Boat on the Chameleon in the last issue or penultimate issue. I can't remember which. Oh, and they weight about 85lbs total, so even asmall person can easily manhandle the 40lb halves around on deck.
