Thanks for the easy link. I knew about the Google site search option, but had been thinking I needed to do something special to search only that specific blog
On topic, for the OP, the most germane comment in there seems to be "Our dingy is only 4 years old, but the number of parts
and pieces on the dingy that have broken and failed is almost too large to mention. "
Unfortunately, that doesn't give me much insight into which parts
or pieces broke or failed.
FWIW, we've not had anything break or fail. OTOH, ours is a 2009 model (theirs was a 2007), so not that old... really only 3 full seasons... and we don't use the dinghy
anywhere near as much as full-time cruisers would... so our experience may or may not be representative.
His follow-on comments about ALL inflatables, including RIBs, would seem useful for consideration... although given our 90-lb First Mutt, the additional stability from an inflatable
is key for our requirements.
We actually looked at WB's 10' rigid dinghy as our initial preference, partly because of the option to outfit it with a sail kit (for occasional playtime), and also intending to add the optional inflatable
collar. Turns out the WB beam would have been more than we could handle on our cantilevered mount system; it would have eliminated some walk space the dog sometimes needs for boarding...
Hence the Genesis.
