Re: Outboard on or off Dinghy While Towing?

We never, ever tow our dinghy outside a bay or harbor, period. It is the most valuable bit of ancillary equipment on our boat. It is our car and our only lifeline to shore.

"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” ― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
