Re: How Big Is Your Dinghy
* If you can't carry it on davits or easily hoist it on deck, it's useless and possibly hazardous. I would never tow a dingy, and before I got davits (prior 27' boat) I did not.
* If you can't do davits, do a sit-in kayak. Easy to paddle, fun, and seaworthy. Can also haul more than non-kayakers believe.
* If you must have a dingy with a motor on a 27' boat, go small, 8.5' sport boat with 3.5hp max. Unless you are actually a power boater passing as a sailor. Try to find a 2-stroke. But for a 27' boat I feel this is a mistake. Anchor closer.
