Dinghy Dogs ???

Has anyone tried dinghy dogs? Did you like them and do they really improve the how tipsy a hard sink feels?

Huh? I haven't got a clue what you're on about - maybe I'm about to learn something new...

I suspect it is this product: http://dinghydogs.com/.

That or a hot dog stand in Martha's Vineyard. :-) I have no experience but I would be skeptical. SC

Don't know why they wouldn't.

I made mine for my Walker Bay using Phifertex to make tubes which I filled with Stowaway fenders.

Yes. less tippy, can sail harder and no annoying bumping against the mothership.

Lol saucy. I meant dink not sink. Dinghy dogs are supposed to make a hard dinghy more like an RIB. I love how well the hard dinghy rows and also sails but don't like how Tippy they feel.

If you have questions about Dinghy Dogs I might be able to answer (not about hot dogs though)
