My slip neighbors use a tandem Sea Eagle kayak and are pleased with it. When deflated and in its case, they stick it in a cockpit locker.

On my Victory 21, I had a very cheap 2 person dinghy. It cost about $39, if memory serves.

The most fun I had on it was transporting my girlfriend (whom I later married) and her best friend on it. They were very stacked, like firewood on top of me. We ate at Mike's crabhouse in Severn, MD. I think every guy at the restaurant wanted to be me that day as we rowed back to the boat.

Now we zip around on a 11'6" Achilles with a 20 HP motor. It's faster, 100+ times more expensive, and carries the 2 of us and the 4 kids and luggage. But somehow I'll never forget the old dinghy.


Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing, anchors, batteries, rode length, fridge-or-not, freezer-or-not, and guns-on-board. I don't know why. It's a mystery!
