Thanks, Zeehag. We had a roll up with inflatable floor and the 8hp 2-stroke with our previous boat. We liked the setup a lot so didn't include it when we put the boat on the market. We stowed the dinghy
in the q-berth for all passages and when we weren't actually going to use it. As a result, it is in great shape after eight years. I've gotten pretty good at servicing the Tohatsu. It's a lot easy to diagnose and fix fuel
problems than it is to row an inflatable to windward.
There's no urgency to selling one of the rigs other than to create space in the basement. Keeping both for awhile is sound advice.
