Welcome to the forum. Yes, many of us, me included, were sailors in an earlier life. Matter of fact I gave away our inflatable tender, which started life as a tender to our last sail boat, to a catamaran owner who only had a small rigid dinghy, last weekend.
Why? Because the valve design is not great, and over several weeks, it goes down, it still works, but when selling, as we are, a potential buyer arriving to see an old, weather-beaten and collapsed dinghy is not a good look. The cat owner was delighted, as he said he and his wife had often thought of trying one. So, after I helped them dock, and we got chatting, I asked them if they would take it? Explained why. They said yes, so I said, "it's yours".
We pumped it up, and he rowed it happily back to his 43 foot cat. I had no real regrets. I was otherwise going to deflate it, roll it up, and drop it in the dumpster. If our boat sells, the new owner would be wise to get a new rubber ducky anyway. This was a better fate. It owed me nothing. It began life as something we bought to use between yachts back in 1985..!
Interestingly, the first musical stage show I ever attended was called Iolanthe.
