RE: New Dinghy help

I just went thru the dinghy decision process last year.*4 years ago we*had de-commissioned our venerable 12 year old Seaworthy inflatable. We bought a Mercury PVC hardbottom as an interim dinghy ...mainly because Defender had a great sale on some defectives (the seat didn't fit, but we never used one anyway).

In retrospect I regret this interim step.

Last fall we decided to make the plunge for a serious inflatable and bought an Achilles Hypalon hard bottom with a double hull. (315DX) It will be powered with a Yamaha 15 hp 2 stroke. This thing should fly and we love to explore when we anchor out*(which is always).

I am about to start re fitting my davits to accomodate it.
