After many hours of searching we finally found a small fiberglass dinghy
to use as our tender
, replacing our old inflateable (named "Patches"). It's a 7' 11" Fatty Knees
designed by Lyle Hess, it came with 6' oars, and we were lucky enough to get a sailing set-up with it!
I've been looking at outboard
motors, and am leaning toward a Tohatsu 2.5hp, it's basically a Nissan
from what I can tell. We've had very good luck with Nissans.
Our cruising plans include B.C. and possibly Mexico
(and beyond?). I would appreciate hearing what hp rating experienced cruisers would recommend we buy.
