Re: Outboard on or off Dinghy While Towing?
When I used an Avon roll-up, the 29 lb OB was on the stern pulpit. For longer (>25 mi) legs, the dink was on the foredeck, deflated.
With my current Avon RIB, the dink and 100 lb motor are towed, but this package weighs about 300 lbs total. For the 10 years Iíve towed this dink, I have never had a problemónot even shipping any significant amount of water. Of course, this is all coastal sailing with no overnight passages.
