How does this sound? As some of you may have read, I have a really nice RIB
with a Honda
7.5 that is just the funniest thing ever. The dinghy
is hypalon and very well built. I love my dinghy
. I loved towing around cruising the PNW and planing to some of the mile plus docks.
Now I need a dinghy I can stow and an engine
I can lift
and stow. The Honda
weighs 83 pounds and the dinghy, I have nowhere to put. I have wracked my brain and can't come up with a solution.
So I put a for sale
ad out and I have someone willing to trade
two stroke 4hp for my Honda, that weighs a beautiful 14kg.
Someone else has "maybe" a five year old west marine
ru-260 which I looked up and is their basic pvc dinghy. He says it's been well taken care of, hardly used and stored in the bag.
What do you guys think. Would I be happy with this? I won't be able to plane and have fun
but I will be able to cruise
in a safe manner which is what is important.
sounds perfect, I'm more worried that the dinghy isn't made well and it's pvc. I'm already in warm sunny places. If I take care of it will it last or are they just poorly made?
I really do need a roll up I can stow in a bag on the foredeck under the jib
I was out in heavy weather
today getting my ass kicked and if I had had a giant rib
trying to reef around it I would have been in real trouble. It would have been unsafe.
