Rigid is best

Yachting World - - Letters -

Re­gard­ing your on­line fea­ture about ten­ders, this dis­cus­sion cen­tres on in­flat­able dinghies. In my opin­ion, noth­ing beats a rigid, row­able dinghy with an out­board.

We sailed for 25 years in and around the Caribbean is­lands and started with an in­flat­able with floor­board in­serts – it only lasted about five years. A Nore­aster glass­fi­bre dinghy was the an­swer for us, pro­vid­ing ser­vice for over 20 years.
