No Dink

Most of our travels will be on rivers and intercoastal, but a gulf crossing is always possible.

We were just in Poulsbo sitting on a friends boat in the public marina when a large m/v came in looking for a slip. Several runs up and down the smaller slips and they headed out to anchor.

We noted their dingy cradle was empty, guess they missed the town that night.

We also have two inflatable kayaks on board for when we don't want to launch our dink, typically in smaller coves with no docks. We wouldn't go without our dingy.
