Livingston Dinghy. Although they are not taking orders at this time (Worldcat is the parent company), I would not recommend them. Our LV10 arrived damaged due to a completely unsuitable packing crate, would not accept the recommended seawise davit system without significant transom modifications, the recommended oar length was two feet too short, and the recommended 9.9 Yamaha cavitates when two adults are on board.

Plus we had to reinforce the hull side so that we could stow it sideways on the stern platform - something that their advertising stated was already done at the factory.

And the rub rail keeps falling off.

I was told by their customer service rep that Worldcat was the fifth owner of the Livingston name; our first Livingston was a 9' and is still going strong after 30 plus years.
