Re: What Do You Do With Your Dinghy?

10' portabote and a 3.5 hp 2 cycle get us to shore. Easy to store folded against lifelines. Rows very well as mentioned. Not perfect by any means. Assembly underway on foredeck is not fun. We prefer to tow it sans engine for short runs. It's very light. We haven't had a problem with it getting pooped. Just bring it in closer to transom if there are rough seas. The engine weighs around 40 lbs. Easy to transport.
