What's a good dingy...
So for everyone that read my last thread, I'm thinking about sailing my boat down the California coast from SF to Ventura. I'm curious on what would be a good dingy to get for the trip, and should I tow it or mount the dingy, and if so where to mount it.
My boat is a 1973 Cal 27. On the trip there will probably be 3-4 people aboard. I'm planning on just port hopping my way down the Pacific coast; SF, HMB, Monteray, Morrowbay, Avila, Santa Barbara, and then Ventura.
The dingy is going to first be used for safty just incase something happens, and to be used to take us to land and back if we moore out, such as we will in Avila.
would it be smart to build a mount for the dingy on the back railing of the boat? or just have it lay upside down on the foredeck of the boat?
Or would it be the best idea to tow it even though it'll slow me up?
