Now THIS is a Dinghy

I don't want to talk about our Walker Bay Genesis dingy disappointment that is currently floating, well 1/2 floating and 1/2 sinking, alongside our boat. A much better topic is our new ride, a 1986 17ft SeaSwirl Tempo power boat. The kids don't know about it yet, but tomorrow morning will be the last time I drop them off at the pier to catch the school bus with our 12ft sinking disaster aluminum skiff. I'm sure they will be surprised when I pick them up from school tomorrow with our new ride. No doubt Jason will want to see how fast "Seventh Day" will go.

I know what you are thinking:
"Rich, now you have finally done it, and gone too far. You have not only gone mad but apparently turned "power boater" on us! What is a Cruiser going to do with a "dingy" like that anyway? What next, a photo of you towing a big yellow inflatable Banana loading with kids around the anchorage?"

Well of course I've gone mad, I came back to the States remember.

A Cruiser wouldn't want a dingy like that, but a Live-a-Board Bozo that needs a good way to get sailboat charter guests from the Port San Luis pier to our moored sailboat does. Since there isn't a place here in Port San Luis for walk-on and walk-off sailboat docking and loading we need a good stable boat for loading charter guests. It's taken some time and several generations of thought to arrive at this sailboat anchorage tormenter low. But here we are, all 140 ponies of MerCruiser power with classic 1980 styling.

As a bonus the boat comes with all the appropriate toys a true weekend power boater warrior would need: ski tubes, skis, wake board, and even an inflatable 3 person yellow Banana boat. Just kill me now before my cruiser friends find out what I've done!
