Re: Of dinghies and sails

Beauty lake.

On my open 8 footer I place a floatation bag under the forward thwarts. I have never needed it because I have never flipped that boat, but I figure it should displace enough water that if I swamp the boat will float high enough for me to bail. It looks something like this.

Your boat would make a nice camp cruiser. Load her up with food and camping gear and head out for a few days or a week where bigger boats wouldn't dare to go.
