    Epic Boat Loss

    So many things to go wrong. So many...

    Hard vs soft dinghy

    I'm all for answering questions. So far the Pudgy has met our needs and served us over 5 years and 1500 nautical miles of sailing. I'm not here to argue about it.

    I like that solution to the deflated WB floats. I'm glad it works for you. It looks pretty clean.

    Our experience aboard Brigadoon differs from your opinion. I won't argue our reasons with a mind so made up.

    Hard vs soft dinghy

    Need a dingy? A mariner near us in PT has a brand new Portland Pudgy for sale. Basic rowboat with oars, bow bumper and boarding ladder. White. Normal price is about $3,500 with a few options and delivered. He wants $2,500. I think that's a deal. It's brand new. Never used. I can pass along contact info. Send it to me at: donn.christianson@gmail.com This is an awesome dinghy. I can speak in detail to it's characteristics.

    I just got an anchor that stays set in most wind shifts or surges.

    I too was a little stuck on my course and sailing worse for it. It was a good lesson. Thanks for the reminder.

    I believe you. I believed what others have said about DDW sailing in some boats. I wanted to see how she sailed. Brigadoon told me. I believe her too. Next time, I think we will bear "up" a little and sail the course you suggested. Brigadoon really seems to like 120-150 degrees.

    No more than 50' in my case.

    So what to you put in the little hole in the front?

    You obviously feel very passionate about this issue. Perhaps you could write an article and post it here so we can learn from your experience.

    Yes, you're absolutely right. It's whatever I say aboard Brigadoon. Thanks again.

    We had an issue or two but they were minor and well worth the advantages. Thank you.
