This is real fucking resourceful if you ask me.
Cockpit that transforms into a dinghy.

Looks like the rudder-post folds down and in the folded position, provides wheels for rolling the thing off... as you see there are six
launching wheels, total. I could see a boat builder incorporating something like this one day and putting it in production. That momentary loss of steering is a bit disconcerting, tho...

This boat has it, too. Maybe a better design:
that does not look much better... the dinghy is nested in the cockpit, and the dink is also nested in itself..
on the plus side, you never have to step down into the dink or step up if the mothership is going down...

not to drift, but what up with the cylon dodger photo 8
and how does one operate the engine controls. from the tiller while leaning over the main sheet traveler...
