A friend has a two-seater inflatable kayak that I'm thinking of buying for a dinghy in case I get to go down to the regatta in Florida in May. It folds up to a small box shape, weighs only 32 pounds and is easily and quickly inflatable. Our little Catalina 22 s are so small themselves that I can't see getting much more than this as a dinghy. I remember reading the story in the club magazine about various dinghys and how people managed who didn't have them. Wouldn't this be a good idea for cruising and for here on our lake for if/when I wanted to go ashore?

The only issue I can think of would be could you safely board it without tipping it, especially if you happen to be in surge. I know that people are able to do it, ecause I see people all over my marina with kayaks for tenders, so you may want to make a trip to our nearest marina and ask around. In fact, I may do the same, as that sounds like a great idea for me too!
