Yes, glad you noticed it - it does have the factory set up for two station row positions to select from in an 8 foot row boat. Select which ever positions meets your needs & for your load your carrying.
The rigid tender is tops when it comes to reliability and ruggedness. This one is in excellent condition.
BTW - it has a place to add Weaver snap davits to be able to store it on your trawler vertically off the swim step on your boat.
Fiberglass hull exterior is formed to a look similar to a lap strake outer skin set up which gives a dryer ride. Weighs 75 lbs.
I have the 2 factory ores & ore locks, not shown in picture - all in good condition.
Also works great with a little 2 HP Honda outboard & scoots along better than an inflatable.
One of the best hard dinghies out there for the size.
Carries 3 people in comfort.
Here is what "Cruising World" had to say about this great little boat :
Ontario-based Boatex makes four different moderately priced tenders (rowing or sailing) between 7 and 12 feet. The 8-foot-3-inch rowing tender we looked at had an optional navy-blue sheer strake, which highlighted the Boatex's graceful sheer and the classic tumblehome. With a 54-inch beam, the boat is very stable for its size, and the fine full-length keel gives it excellent tracking ability. With virtually no exposed wood, the standard version manages to produce classic looks without adding to upkeep.
Virtues: The towing eye is a failsafe metal grommet installed laterally through the stem, leaving no hole into the hull or fasteners to fail.
Vices: The hanging-thwart design leaves some hard edges and a few tough-to-clean nooks and crannies.
So I was thinking about $ 500.00 - OBO. I can deliver in So-Cal area if you cover the gas money.
