Yeah, bigger dingy can be a little bit more problematic. BUT, I think the advantages is more with a big dingy (of course relative propotionell to the boat). As long as you have davits its fine, but if you dont I suggest you get it . Pulling it up och beaches = get folding wheels for it.

For all you monohull-sucking-basterds under 40ft I understand it would be a problem having a big dingy(even a hardbottom).

Tom I agree with you fully. More speed more injury. Same on Autobahn, same in a fast boat if something happens. The ones disagreeing with you are just looking for attention, all is obvious, why do we then have speedlimits? Just to aggrevate people i dont think so./Harry
