Re: New toy: 9ft nesting sailing dinghy

I started putting pictures on my website

Nesting Dinghy

basically only have the beginning on the website, yard art picture to a boat again and one of the boat with the sprit sail.
I'll get more up there but I'll put a few on here. I'm almost out of room on the free website, so had to delete some other stuff, then wait overnight for them to realize I deleted stuff to make room for the new.

The boat is called a Jigger.

Re: New toy: 9ft nesting sailing dinghy

On down the road You might consider some oars. Edey & Duff make some good ones.
One of the things I like about rowing the hard dinghies is admiring my boat as I row ashore from a mooring.

As you can see, this is not a racing machine but more for sightseeing around in the anchorage or to the beach.

Re: New toy: 9ft nesting sailing dinghy

Best not to mention the price, the Admiral would fire me

The boat will come with a set of standard wooden oars.

kudukuguam: yes, that's the website.

Jon, I looked at your website. Your story is very interesting, impressive what you can fix! Great boat and dinghy, I'm sure they will both look great when you are finished with them.

Here's a nested photo. Great looking little boat. They also make a 14ft using three sections.

Re: New toy: 9ft nesting sailing dinghy

The sail area would probably suck, but I'd love to have one oar for the mast and one for the rudder, just so you could switch from oar to sail with the same gear. I'm trying to talk myself into a hard dinghy. This helps.
Thanks,
goat

Yes, that's an interesting question I'm looking forward to checking when it arrives. Not sure what's the best way to place it, if bottom should be up or down for example. I will keep you updated with my experiences! It's expected to arrive around 15th of August.

Re: New toy: 9ft nesting sailing dinghy

Just an update on this one. Exerience not so good so far I am afraid! My boat was dropped because the builder tried to take some photos on my request which resulted in a small unstructural damage. This was intented repaired but the result was not so good according to the builder. But the most important is that my boat has also been rejected because of various other cosmetical issues. Builder says he is really sorry for all this and that he has really messed up my order. He has also various times already, because of earlier delays, offered my money back. He has now also offered to make a completely new boat for me and new delivery time is November.

My patience is now running thin but I have said that I don't want to cancel the order but want a new boat.

Incidents, delays and bad production samples can happen to anyone. What is worrying here is the lack of reply on e-mails, which he says is because he has too much to do. After my latest confirmation that I don't want to cancel the order 13 days ago there is no answer. This has been an issue all the time I am afraid! As a minimum, a confirmation e-mail should be sent thanking me for still wanting his product, despite the various issues, and that he would do his best to make a fine sample and deliver on time, or something like that. It doesn't take more than 2 minutes to write and send that!

Check your spam folders and realize your email may also have been lost on his end.

If he got it then here are some thoughts:

The fellow already offered you either your money back or a delivery in November. Neither are what you communicated here as what you want or will accept. If you said the same to him he's between a rock and a hard place. The fellow unfortunately has probably done what many will do--written you off as someone whose needs he cannot meet. You are going to be unhappy no matter what he does so he has no incentive to delay other customers to try and fix the mess of your order. He's so busy he doesn't need your order it seems.

Unless YOU do something, you continue to represent an unsuccessful transaction even if he still has you in que for November.

If you really want the boat you will send him a note expressing how you're looking forward to getting it in November and play nice.

These sad delays do happen with mass produced items too but we all tend to overlook them explaining away shipping/customs/other delays of weeks or months.

Be kind and it will be rewarded.

Re: New toy: 9ft nesting sailing dinghy

I used to have a Swanson "Snug" nesting dinghy. It was awful. To allow it to "nest" the seats were positioned very poorly, basically too far forward and aft. It was virtually unusable.


If you towed it over about 4 knots it would flood via the centreboard case.


Very heavy too, I once tore a calf muscle launching it.


Best thing about it was, it was easy to sell. For some reason lots of people (who'd never owned one) thought they were fantastic.
