Just curious if anyone has used a Achilles LT series dinghy. I like the low weight and compactability relative to their weight carrying capacity, I am curious though about how one would keep them drained if it were suspended on dinghy davits as they do not have a solid transom with a drain.

We considered the LT-2 when we were shopping for an inflatable last summer, and passed on it in favour of a Rubber Duck RDS, partly because of the lack of drainage, and also because the RDS had a slightly wider beam, slightly higher hp rating and tracks better, at a lower price point.

For spuddling about in a chop the larger tubed dinghies are much nicer - we now have a small tubed roll-up Zodiac and it's pretty wet motoring in a chop, esp with more than a couple on board.
