Hard Dinghy

15 November 2009 | Buceo, Uruguay
Richard
Matt and Ted (rowing) in the hard dinghy. The choice of dinghies in Santa Catarina (where I bought this one) was quite limited, and this one has more modifications (mostly raising the freeboard) required to make it suitable for our purposes. It does row well.

Issuma has three dinghies, which is a bit excessive, but nice if you can store them all. There is an inflatable (with an outboard engine), the above hard dinghy, and a Nautiraid folding dinghy (which has been the main dinghy used for the last 1.5 years). The folding dinghy stores easily belowdecks, the hard dinghy is stored on deck, and the inflatable is, with some work, stored inside the hard dinghy.
