Inflatable and a motor.What could go wrong?
Since we started sailing 7 years ago, we have always used a small plastic dinghy with oars or paddles. Sailing with 2 dogs, we head to shore frequently, often in some challenging situations. Kind of a miracle we haven't flipped yet.
Just picked up a used Avon dinghy with a 10 hp rating. Put our old Johnson 6 hp 2 stroke on it.
As an experienced whitewater raft guide, I get the care and feeding of an inflatable. I have 3-4 seasons with the Johnson, so I know many of the quirks of an aging 2 stroke.
What else should I know?
How o people screw this up? As much as I like learning from my mistakes, I prefer to learn from your mistakes. Please share.
