Add 2 adults and a 65lbs K9. Very stabile and durable. I have run 2, 6, and 15 hp outboards. The dog must go to shore so it gets beached on oyster beds, rocks, and all things covered in barnacles. No problem. It is not fast and not designed to plane off easily. The 15 hp will do it but the transom flexes with that much power so I stepped back down to the 6hp. I cut in two rectangular hatches under the bench for access to a ton of additional storage. This required the removal of the ball of injected foam. The dingy was then stood up on the transom and new foam poured in to the “tube” cavity on both sides of the transom. Works great. Would still like something that gets on plane for extended exploring but the compromise is necessary for our needs. We have towed it from the Tennessee river to the keys with no problem. Added a Bimini as well.
