Water tender used to make one like that, round bottom and pointed bow. The 9.4 is a cathedral hull
with a squarish bow. I don't know too much about the pointy bowed one other than it appears to like any other small round bottomed dinghy
, probably quite tender (tippy) but should row well. I have one of the square ones and like it a lot. Pretty indestructible and way more stable than a round bottom, but not as stable as an inflatable
. About half to a third the cost of an inflatable
. Construction appears to be the same, rotomolded plastic of some kind inner and outer hulls with foam blocks inside for flotation. The hull parts
are riveted together and that seam can leak so periodically tip the hull up and open the drain plug
. The square ones are pretty popular around here, there are five or six of them here in my mooring
field. They were made right here in Muskegon, MI, but alas the company went out of business last year. They also made kayaks under the Sundolphin brand. They were all sold by WM, Walmart, the big box sorting goods stores, etc.
