Just got my first "boat" inflatable cat 310

Hello sailers,
I took the concept of go small go now to the bare minimum, s my first "boat" I decided to get a inflatable minicat 310 sport, hey I will have two sails - main and jib, on rolfok
Idea is I have a lake very close, and yet not a place for storing a "real" boat, so something I can pack in compact size, and that will get me to train sailing basics is what I can do right away, and so I did.
Once I get my space prepared so I can park a trailer sailor, that will be the next step and the minicat becomes the dinghy
Bonus I can take the "boat" even on plane. Downside I get no cabin
So I guess I'm a sailor now

Good idea to just go sailing. It looks like a fun little boat.

Congrats! It sounds like a great intro to sailing, and a lot of fun.
From a selfish perspective, please let us know how you like it. I've been looking at some similar inflatables for playing around anchorages. So some first hand experiences would be great!

Sure, let me play with it in different conditions for a couple of months and I will come back to share my experience

Re: Just got my first "boat" inflatable cat 310

So I had the "boat" out on the weekend for a short couple of hours on our dam here. Over all first impressions are positive. As for having it on boat as a dinghy, really depends on size of your boat, the assembly is not complicated, thou it takes time and effort, but the major point is space, assembled it has more than 3 meters of length and its as well wide, so if you have a catamaran of decent sice, should be simple, on monohull, consider having the space to assemble.
