You Delta people have a lot of fun and I'll just bet that Mark's dinghy is a real "Cooty Pie" ( can't believe I said that..)

Walt, you're always welcome on FlyWright. I even have an extra refrigerator if needed.

Name suggestions are very ingenious/creative. But a small dinghy's transom can't hold many visible letters. Still, there's no reason a dinghy's name must be printed on it.

What about Bandicoot...? It's an Australian marsupial. Maybe it was the band painted round the gunwhale gave me the idea.

As you know, no refrigerator is required by me!
I was hurt, however, by PineappleGirl's suggestion that I throw too much S--t over board. I always thought she was a nice person!

I know you don't fill them, we have plenty of video proof of that! But I thought you might need a spare to throw overboard if you felt the need coming on.

Walt that's what I'm talking about! What if you came on board and threw, say, my ice maker overboard?!? Not only would we be drinking warm drinks but we'd probably knock a prop off on the new underwater obstruction!!! You can visit if you PROMISE not to throw ANYTHING overboard.

I promise but does that include Matt? ....and, I would never be so rude as to deep six your ice maker. (Clearly the most important appliance on the boat.) BTW...I was at my boat yesterday and thought of yur (I'm from the hill country) windlass project. Here's what 3/8 chain looks like in a properly sized gypsy.

The dinghy C Coot's first time in water on May 22, 2013 in the Petaluma, CA downtown turning basin, cuddled aside the Carquinez Coot:



There is an interesting story about this Trinka's first taste of water. I'd prefer to hear the witnesses' versions first.

Way to go Mark.

You've not only got the most desirable trawler on TF but the most desirable dingy as well.

How wide is your Coot? she looks very beamy in post # 95.

I have a like new 2011 Yamaha 4 long shaft unused since its first factory service last fall that would work perfect on the dink, only about 20 to 25 hours max.

It here in Monterey and I only have 10 days before we head back east to the TN river and I dont need it anymore. It was on my Bauer 10 dink that I sold with the CA 34 early this spring.

Will make you a good deal

Gwkiwi,

Too much power AND weight.

He would use 2hp and about 30 lbs.

But the only downside to your 4 is the weight and perhaps the vibration.

The Coot's beam is a tiny bit over thirteen feet.

A dinghy is enough hassle without an engine!

After dinghy C Coot's self/independent voyage and recovery, Ray (Giggitoni) rowed it back to the Coot. Ray was overheard to say "I want one!" He demonstrated vastly superior rowing skills compared to mine!
