Am considering swapping dinghy's, to a Highfield CL310 or UL310. Like the lighter-weight aspect of the UL model. However, one of the issues we have with out current Avon
is that my wife has difficulty stepping up over the bow tube onto the boat
. The CL line has that nice storage
box in the bow that would address that. The UL has some kind of platform up there, but it looks like it is a little aft, so wouldn't be as useful as a step off.
Anyone have the UL that can comment? Cannot find any pictures on Highfield's or retailers website to see this. Would love to see a pic if anyone has one.
Finally, I have a really sweet Yamaha 8 hp 2 stroke
. Probably only a 200 hrs on it, and been garage kept when not cruising. Wonder what the chance it that it would plane the UL310 with two adults? It makes our Avon
310 Lite fly with two, but that boat
weight 95 lbs and it has a much flatter "V".
