Re: Dinghy/Motor Advice, Please

i think isnt EVERYbody wanting these trendy items.(ss roll bars, arches)
i surely do not want one. is a shiny and pricey item that seems to attract rats more frequently than less obvious displays of wealth.

I ended up buying an 8'10 Hypalon air floor and a Tohatsu 9.8hp 2 stroke. So far it seems manageable. I'm able to carry the motor up the transom and put it on the stern rail by myself. Hoisting it onto the foredeck with my main halyard alone was also very easy. It takes up most of my foredeck and makes my anchor locker inoperable, but I can always deflate it and roll it up, then store it on my foredeck.

Thanks for all your tips. Very helpful. Oh, and the dinghy absolutely flies. Very nice!
