Has anyone ever had one of these dinghies? The Dinks
One is for sale
in my neck of the woods and the price
is right, I'm just curious about a few things.
I'm most curious about the sailing version. I know dinghy/yacht tender
sailing is usually pretty lack luster compared to a race dinghy
, but I'm curious how they do. I plan on using one as a tender
and sailing at anchor
or out of the marina on hot days when we are hanging around but not taking the bigger boat out.
So have you had one? How was the quality of construction? Would it only sail on a reach? Or can it point into the wind
a little bit? Are they really tippy or not so bad for a rigid hull
With the squared off stern I'm hoping it's a little more sure footed than my old wood and fiberglass
pram that is now so waterlogged it must weigh 180lbs at least.
