I would not want a trinka for a general purpose dinghy. They are beautiful and all that but round bottom boats are a pita as tenders. The porta boat is a great solution. You probably won't impress the neighbors with it or win best in show! They are very practical from many standpoints and Way above inflatables IMHO. For a general purpose skiff (think pickup truck), it must be able to tough it out at the town landing with other skiffs while your doing your shopping. Bumps and bruisers are the norm. Trinka is a delicate flower that would also be a theft temptation.
