Anyone recognize this model of Achilles Dingy?



I scooped this guy up off of Ebay along with a tiny 1.2 HP Tanaka outboard. I Had been on the lurk for an Avon Redcrest for a while since I primarily trailer my 26 foot boat around and wanted a dingy that I could stuff away and not have to tow everywhere.

This little thing just knocks it out of the park, it's a little over 6 feet long and rolls up into a quite small package other than the single piece plywood floor which can happily live under one of the berths.

I'd like to get some weight and capacity info for it plus just generally know what it is so I can be on the hunt for a second one for my buddy's boat too.

I have that exact dinghy (without the OB and OB bracket).
Achilles still makes it, and parts for it:

Excellent! It does seems to be a very handy size for those of us who are more on the boat side and less on the yacht side with our main boats.
