RE: Towing vs. carrying the dinghy

Sorry John, I did them a dis-service, from this view I agree, different, purposeful, and quite attractive in a functional sort of way. Did you have a gecko at the Fathom 40?

Towing vs. carrying the dinghy

Not up close. And I do think it is not fair to judge based on the boat being out of the water. I just thought it was a cool pic. I do agree, the beauty of the True North is definitely in the eye of the beholder. They are neat boats...expensive. But I like their intended purpose...which is ruggedness. You can put your soft dinghy in the cockpit and then put a kayak or two up on the roof. Lotsa functionality in that boat!!! ANd I have seen them in person and they do look better in person. *Their "scale" is lost in photos. *They look substantial in person.

JohnSince you asked, I'd have to say imho that the vertical or almost reverse raked stem doesn't work for me. I'm just sayin.
