My dinghy lives with me. Don't tell'er I said that.




I love it when threads go off a tangent.




I may use Pond Scum as my tender, dink, or duck. PS is a 10' (actually 9'6") Gamefisher Jon boat. I believe it's a Ted Williams model from the late '60s or early '70s. Freeboard on it sucks. I used to get swamped by jack@$$ when I used it on local lakes.

Ben,
I remember those boats.
Actually rather good looking. Compared to the tinnies that were often seen in the same places.
How would you rate the hull design Ben?

I wouldn't rate it high. mine is a first rendetion. It's pop riveted aluminum and weighs about 35-40lbs. It has about 8 to 10 inches of freeboard and a low low load rating of 300lbs. It looks like it was made out of roofing tin. I wish I would have bought the V hull model. I was a high school kid with limited means when I bought the boat.
