Kayaks and zodiacs and Dinghys Oh my...
I've just been pondering the best idea for a small boat for a solo sail.. I was thinking a Kayak Would be cool becasue you could do a lot with it and get in and out of tight places with easy portages..
A small Zodiac would be cool for obvious reasons plus it'd be easy to stow on board in adverse weather.
Then the old stand by, A regular dinghy boat..
The only down fall I see with the Kayak is if I should happen to meet a nice young lady that I want to bring aboard from the shore that might be problem. Maybe a two seater kayak. that would aid with groceries too..
getting from a kayak onto the mothership can be problematic. Especially with groceries. It can be tough even from a good hard dinghy like ours. SWMBO took an unplanned swim twice while trying to board our wooden dinghy Chirp.
We now have a small inflatable which has more than met our expectations, and cost less than $750, including shipping.
What about some sort of outrigger on the kayak? That would make it more stable. I am just throwing a random idea out there. An inflatable dinghy is usually the preferred way to go.
So, and what's the problem with calling the Launch on 68 and telling them you are ready to go back to your yacht?
Just kidding, common, lighten up :)
We use an inflatable when we are doing the coast of Maine and a hard old dingy when at home - the hard old one never needs locking up - nobody would want it!
