Re: Thoughts on this boat as a dinghy

It's an old cathedra hull design. I thought all the manufacturers stopped building them.

They can be nice in calm water but in rough water it's basically a barge that will be very slow and wet then going into waves.

I didn't see a weight on their web page but if it's really 30kg, I would question how tough it is.

For a calm anchorage at low speed, it should be fine.
