At least sailors travel fairly slowly and mostly tend to recognise the difference.
bit like the yacht versus supertanker thread then?

Its been said before a prat with a certificate is still a prat.
A prat with a yacht is still a prat
And a prat with a driving licence is also still a prat-witnessed by new crease in m'car door even though I am the driver outa the advert who parks on the far side of the supermarket car park where there are no other vehicles--but then attracts one each side and as near as they can get despite dozens of spaces and no other cars. Must have a ***** magnet in mine I think!

Agreed... and its also a fecking good bit of wind resistance if you haul it onboard and tie it to the A frame .. unless you are a fastidious Polwart type who probably has one that deflates into codpiece sized pouch

Don't be daft - blow up boats are mental! If you make your boat from recycled carrier bags you can drive it right into the shore before chucking the pax off!

Fair point Comes back to common sense. I thought I was the person in the advert parking in the far corner of the car park in the corner under the light (but not trees - birds ugh) so that at least only one side could be attacked. Drives my wife mad. Mind you I don't like to anchor too near other boats either so the Air Show was borderline stressful!

Well, that's true. But just think of the entertainment value for others watching you from the beach. Priceless

It's even more fun when, like mine, the dinghy's only 1.8m. Bit like getting in - and out of - a kayak.

Mind you, it deflates enough for me to stow it behind the bench seat aft. It'd rattle around too much if I tried to stow it in my codpiece.
