Just to make you feel safe in a dinghy.
Never felt safe with "Handbag's" about.

I remember going up some of the creek's putting out crabpot's and looking at the bank's where the top would be 10 ft above the dinghy, and seeing the clawmarks and slides where the croc's had climbed out and slid in.

Alway's hoping they were,nt about to slide into the dinghy with us.

We'll have a bigger dinghy with more freeboard on the new boat.
