We're looking for a cheap dinghy
to get us the 50 yards or so to the mooring
, and to row the dog ashore during our overnighters. Most inflatables in our budget
are in tough shape, plus they don't row too well. I'm focusing on a traditional dinghy
. We don't have room to stow a dinghy on the deck
of our 31 footer. So for the occasional (twice a season maybe?) 3 day cruise
outside of Narragansett Bay towing effort is a consideration.
I think my ideal would be a Walker Bay with the flotation tubes for added stability, but I'd take one without them as well. Next would be something that can be outfitting for sailing like a Dyer. But I've also see a few Water Tender
9.2 tri-hull types. I wold think it should make the trip to the mooring
ok and my wife would probably appreciate the added stability. I'm wondering how they would tow compared to a vee bottom.
Any experience with tri-hull types of dinghies and how they tow, effort-wise, compared to a v hull
