Re: Of dinghies and sails
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. https://walkerbay.com/shop/replaceme...it-pvc-yellow/
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.
