I have seen some ads and the web site of Bull Frog tenders (made in the northwest) and they seem very interesting to me. These are aluminum
hulled RIBs with foam flotation in the tubes and I think also in the hull
They are claimed to be virtually indestructable (run 'em right up on shore) and with all the flotation, unsinkable. (I know it sounds like a titanic boast all over again.)
I intend to anchor
out (or moor if staying anywhere for a while) while I cruise
the caribe for several years. My previous experience with a standard Avon inflatable
dink, left a lot to be desired. I never felt comfortable with the bottom.
At any rate, I will get a RIB
this time, either fiberglass
and part of the use will be not only to go ashore but to scuba
I intend to use davits
to get it out of the water
Does anyone have any experience with these bull frogs?
