My next Dink

Anyone ever consider one of these for a tender?

PVC construction will turn into a 'Goo' boat in a year with full time UV exposure. Great for where the sun don't shine or a boat that gets very little use.

Re: My next Dink

The decent ones are pretty heavy. The lightweight ones don't last long.

70 mph in a dinghy is a bit much for me, but the air entrapment cat/tunnel hull is offered on tenders more suitable for our usage and they can plane even with just 3 hp. Plus easy to get into from the water, just push down on the bow and slither in.
