I just bought a new dinghy, a 2021 Highfield Ultralight 340 Hypalon. Info here
I’ve been thinking of a new RIB for the last year or more. The local dealer runs good January specials, and they had very good pricing on the Hypalon version. I think I’ll be happy with it.
I have an old Yamaha 15 hp 2 stroke that will be a good match for the boat. Total dry weight of the boat and motor is under 200 pounds. My plan has been to keep it on top of the deckhouse, but I’ve recently been having doubts about that. The alternative is a good set of davits. In any case the new dinghy is well suited for either storage method.
