for use as a transportation device from your anchored boat to a beach, some kind of a motorized reflatable is a good thing to have. even small outbard on a walker bay is a good choice. the walker bay dinks donot get stolen. engines do, not th plastic boats. mine is 8 ft.
reflatable boats make great work platforms, as they are stable and g3entle on your hull
, unlike anything metal.
but--s your choice. have fun deciding.
Yep, I'm with Zeehag on this one. My Walker bay does everything a small dinghy
should do. Motors well with a 4hp o/b, rows very nicely and sails
remarkably well too. Best of all perhaps is that it is so light that my lightly constructed davits
don't mind it up there at all. Walker Bay Australia |
