Problem solved!
Though I'd go for a roundtail if you're not going to use a motor on it. It'll be easier to roll up and stow.

Naaah ... tried em all ... the wee dingy is probably next best, but a bit of a PITA if youve got unsteady punters to deal with, or dogs, and a PITA to stow /inflate/deflate

Mothercome beach on Monday with a 100 m trip attached to the anchor and secured with a grapnel anchor on the beach.

No beach broaching today . That said I had to constantly assure my wife that she wasn't going to die, that RIBs are safe (i have and wear everything i can think of) and that the kill cord (wrapped around my leg) wouldn't fall off and that even if I flew vertical for 6 feet it probably wouldn't slip off my ankle!

She did calm down on the way back after the BBQ!
