Fatty Knees

Anybody have a Fatty Knees dinghy?
I love the look of them.

Also love the WhiteHall.
I was amazed when I saw the prices of the Whitehall's.
Looks like you can spend around 15-20 Grand on one of these puppies.

Are the Fatty Knees priced similarly?

Edey & Duff is a great company to deal with, too. Dave Davignon has been there pretty much been there since Day One, so he's a great resource.

Life is too short to sail ugly boats.

Last time I looked into the Fatty Knees I was given to understand that they are built with a chopper gun, which would not be my preference for long-term durability -- one of the primary reasons to buy a hard dinghy.

If I'm mistaken about this please correct me.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
