Mark's Dinghy

Mark, I found the perfect dink. The one you've been lusting over. Come over tonight and we can grab a couple of those pesky steers in the pasture behind my house and you can trade something for Al's outboard. You'd have the only one of its kind in the Delta.

Thanks, Ray, but I need something a little bigger where one rides in the dinghy, not on it.

I believe the inflated cow being carried is actually not a dink, but the trawler version of this type of craft. You can tell by the way the windows (the forehead) slope back, as they should.

Yes, Mark needs something to set him apart from the other boats on the Delta!

I like the concept of multipurpose, but don't need a doll!

You just haven't had the pleasure of meeting Polly Ethylene.

I dunno. I think this is more Mark's style....lots of labor, sail option, and windows slightly wannabee.

With the right color scheme that may work well for Mark. Needs chrome air horns though.

I surrender!

This afternoon I ordered the rowing model of the Trinka 8: similar to the one on the left except hull will be dark green, of course.

Very nice! I'll hang onto my Honda OB for you when you get tired of rowing against the current. I'll even paint it green and yellow for you.

Thanks, Al, but my current thoughts are that I could use the exercise.

You're right. Should figured.

I wish! I'm settling for a "horn-on-a-can." As it was could barely stay within budget with twin air horns for the Coot.

Saiing dinghies are a lot of fun. I'm sure you will enjoy the heck out of yours, Mark, especially with your sailing experience. Are you going to carry it on the Coot or tow it?

Photo is our friends from France in the Montgomery rowing/sailing dinghy that came with our boat. After we added the Livingston on the stern we debated getting rid of the Montgomery but in the end we decided to keep it. We're really glad we did.

No, no sail on the tiny dinghy, nor an outboard and its its dangerous gasoline increasing the dinghy's weight 50%... The Trinka has two oaring positions. With two people, the one oaring would sit forward so the dinghy would be more balanced.

Will carry or tow as convenient/safe in the circumstance. In the SF estuary, I'm intending to tow after there is a need to launch. Frequent hauling aboard and launching would be exhausting to this senior citizen.

Trinka 8 is a great choice Mark. It's going to look great in dark green.
