Hi All:

Does anyone have experience - good or bad - with this 11 ft tender? Thanks.

Can you elaborate a little? How does it handle any kind of sea state? Will you stay relatively dry in a 1 to 2 ft chop? Thanks. Jim

Jim, it is a flat bottom hull so will slap pretty good in chop at speed. I installed electric trim tabs which helped a lot. It can handle 3 adults although I have had 4 in protected waters.

It is stable when boarding and great for fishing from. I had the 11 ft Sport Boston Whaler before which my crane could not pick up but easily lifts the BWB. No it is not built as solid as a BW but has served me well for about 3 years now.

I find the ride to be dry but it is a dinghy....

If you can lift a BW, the model 110 Sport with a 25hp 4 stroke Mercury (695 pounds) is not any different in price. I paid $11,500 at the Miami boat show 3 years ago. That's after a $500 rebate.
