DON'T BUY WALKER BAY
I have had Caribe and AB in the past and they have been good dinghies and performed as expected, this time I tried buying
a Walker Bay, I liked the double flooring
and the light weight, but it comes as a cost.
After being in contact Ivan Gamez "Warranty Administrator" they offered me $300 of a new hull
or $500 off a new dinghy
We have had the dinghy
since it was 2 weeks old, but because we bought it with our "demo model catamaran" as a dinghy, we are not considered the first owner and that is their way out of warranty.
I can only recommend never to buy any of their products.
I have never had to repair any dinghy hull
made from fiberglass
from other manufactures.
This is clearly a design fault and a weak point from the manufacturer, they just don't want to admit it, we have always only had the recommended 15 HP outboard
, and never abused it.
Then on top of it, these hulls are made from a type of plastic, that only few people even know how to repair, and good luck finding any in remote
When cruising you need it as simple as possible
