I hate the thing! We have a pram dinghy - a Salcombe Pram to be precise. It could be any dinghy, we have tried an inflatable and don't like that either. We have to get to the boat in the middle of the, drying, estuary 3/4 mile away, wash from fishermen, well their boats (why are they such A.. Wi..s), wash from evdery thing is a potential threat and now my wife tells me there is only six inches of freeboard at my end while steering! We are thinking about getting a 14' to moor 20 yards off the quay and walk to it or use tender when necessary. Does anybody else have a strong dislike of getting wet ( this includes a little spray on the way across the estuary) and an even stronger desire to be sure of not ditching in the water. THIS last statement excludes any answers from those partisans among us who are stoicly pressing on with the use of wheelbarrows to get to their boats!
