Re: How do you ride in your dinghy

I prefer to sit on the floor near the stern. In rough conditions, I push with my feet against the opposite tube, to brace my back against the other tube, so I'm not bouncing around. I also usually put a Type IV PFD under my butt too on hard floor models. On air floor models, I don't.

I have a stearable front wheel on my dingy and often ride it down boat ramps with the same result as shown in the video. I am curious as to how they talked the owner of the car under the dingy into that stunt?

My guess is that it was not a fully serviceable car. Perhaps it was just for bombing around on a farm or perhaps it was going to a salvage yard. I was glad to see that they pulled it out of the water when they were done.
