The Fundamentals of Dinghy Choice
"Size and power are the major considerations. Too small a dinghy makes hauling unexpected guests or heavy loads a dangerous undertaking. Slow speeds make trekking to a distant anchorage miserable if the weather turns foul. On the other hand, too large a dinghy and engine are difficult for a small crew to handle and stow in a seamanlike fashion. It is our observation that many novice liveaboard cruisers begin with very small, low-powered dinks and gradually work themselves up the dinghy size and power chain to large planing tenders."
