I always see a sale and it's always the same time of year... and I always say to myself, if only I needed a dinghy NOW... I'd get it. But, of course... whenever it's on sale, I don't need it. But when I do need it, it's NEVER on sale

I think you're right... 10ft is the way to go. Which 10-footer do you recommend?

Good call, Abe! I love those Caribe dinghys. Is that an SO409? I bought my davits 2 years ago but never installed them. How was your installation
? Any issues?
Decision made to go 10 feet... thanks, guys! Now, which 10-footer?
Thank you for all your help and the time you spend answering and helping. If you're ever in the NY/NJ area, let me know... beers on me!
There's a cool bar right on the water
by my marina... I'll take you guys in the dinghy to the bar
