If I could find a half decent used one for sale around here, I would buy it. Nice dinks.

There are two on Craigs List in ME Topsham & Harpswell plus several others in New England. I love mine very stable and good load carrying ability for the size.

The Harpswell one is not a Dyer, but a Dyer "like" that looks funky.

The Topsham one is an 8' one. No pics. Sounds good. But I want the 9' one.

I know: picky, picky.
