I have a question which I am almost embarrassed to ask, but here goes anyway. What do people do with their dinghies at night when they are anchored? I understand that if you have davits
you can just raise it out of the water
, but I anticipate having a windvane
and I am not sure if I could have a davit system. Can you just leave the dink tied to the stern or will it bang against the hull
Also, if I am in a marina and moored, does this make a difference. I can't envision being allowed to have the dink float behind the boat
in a confined area like a marina.
For what it is worth, I think I will end up going the portabote route
. I don't like the idea of inflatables since I would prefer to row vs motor
, and I will need something collapsible since my boat
will be of the pocket cruiser
variety. It seems like an inflatable
bouncing against the hull
wouldn't be a big deal, but obviously I don't want rigid dinghy
bouncing against my boat.
Thanks for the help guys.
