Inflatable Dinghy & Outboard - Part 2
We have been continually refining our thinking on this subject and have just purchased our new rigid hull inflatable (RIB) dinghy and outboard motor.
APEX A-10 Lite Aluminum RIB
This image is the A-10 Lite with the fiberglass hull--ours
is nearly identical but with an aluminum hull.
|We liked the heavy (1/2-inch thick) aluminum transom |
and the heavy aluminum lugs for lifting and towing.
|Maggie and I could lift and maneuver the aluminum |
RIB pretty easily in Fawcett's showroom.
Yamaha 9.9 HP 4-stroke Outboard
We believe that this is the most reliable engine for our new inflatable
dinghy. We purchased it as a dinghy-motor combination
from Fawcett's in Annapolis.
Storing Dinghy on Fore Deck
|It may look a bit crazy but this template gives us a better idea of how |
our new inflatable dinghy will fit on our fore deck fully inflated.
|This is a view of the template in place looking toward the bow.|
