Been there, done that. I just need to pull the trigger but I can't do it. Nice Fatty on Flakeslist down here but it is an 8 footer and I'm a big guy, would prefer a 9 or 10 footer

One aspect of the Trinka I like is that there are two rowing positions: in the middle for one person (or three small persons); forward for two.

I've never had a chance to use one but the Trinka is about the prettiest little boat there is. When Mark Johansen was building them in Miami, I visited his shop and was very impressed with the quality of the work.

Well, there ya go, Parks. FF spotted one in Ft. Lauderdale. Next time I come down from Stuart, I can throw it on the roof of the Hummer and drop it off for you, just like those deliveries you made to Capn. Chuck. Looks a little rough, though.

Rigged a hoist system for the Trinka the other day. It makes use of a spare halyard and a block and tackle, held in place by one of the backstays. The 4-to-1 advantage should be sufficient for hoisting the less than 120 pounds of the 8-foot Trinka, plus gear (no outboard).

The gray rope spanning the upper and lower handrails is to eliminate contact of dinghy and boat while hoisting and lowering. It will be deployed only when needed.

Got the 8-foot Trinka to the Coot and placed it on the saloon roof today. It fits like a glove.

Mark every time you post I feel like I need to go get the camera and take some pictures of my kids. Your whole life must be well documented!

It's already named: C Coot. It's engraved on the interior side of the transom.

Showed the picture above to my neighbors 2 year old daughter and she asked what is it? I opened another picture of your boat Mark and told her it's the Coot. We looked back at the picture of your Trinka being loaded and she said "Oh, it's a Cootie!"

I'll bring a Sharpie in case you change your mind. C Coot could easily be changed to AC Cootrement. And I know a couple of drunk guys who might consider doing it for no charge this weekend!
