Anyone use one of these as a tender? How do they row, sail, motor
, tow (protected waters of course)?
I have one. bought it with a hole in the side of it for $100.00. Came with CB, Rudder
, and everything to be able to sail it in a nice canvas
I have rebuilt the boat a number of times. Sailed it only a few times and like the boat a lot. Have towed it and or lifted it up on the bow of my Morgan
. It weighs in at approx. 100#.
At one time had a 4hp 2 stroke
that would plane 2 people.
I put a removable seat (I take it out if I'm to tow it)in the center from around CB box to the bow box and have 2 sets of oar locks. The forward locks I use if someone is riding in the stern. the rear locks are for one person rowing.
I have heard nothing but good things about the boat.
Got picture of it but you would have to e mail or a personal message to get them to you.
Best of luck with it.
