Thanks sooo much for the input on towing the Mckee craft.
Yes this is more like a real boat than a dingy, its similar to a boston whaler, she is suppose to be un-sinkable.
At this point I am still on the "fence" sounds like to me that no matter what you tow you may have to bid a good buy to if in a bad situation.
I would definately watch the weather & wait for several days to make the 60-80 mile crossing from Fla. to the Bahamas
Once there, I can't help but think this craft would be the perfect island hopper & exploration vessel. (tiki bars etc...)
Then when we return I would wait again for good weather, I have no real time schedule as this economy has ruined my construction bus. & forced early retire..... o-well Life in the Islands ????
If I decide to go the risk I will install new heavy duty towing eyelets etc. as per Tingum suggestion.
The reason I'm going with solar panels
& wind generator
is because I plan to hang on the hook as much as possible & live lean.
Thanks again for the continued input.
