Don and Margaret Lacoste


I am in the process of purchasing a used Fatty Knees dinghy here in Maine. It is the 8' model and comes with the sail rig. Many of you are familiar with this boat.

I ran into a fellow sailor who had lots of Bahama experience and he indicated hard dinghies are a total waste of money since they do not provide a diving platform and given the long anchorage distances, are useless to get to shore with. He strongly recommended an inflatable or hybred. He started his journey with a hard dinghy and sold it after the first cruise.

What are your opinions on this? Also, can the Fatty Knees be lashed to the forward deck? My W-32 has a traveler forward of the dodger so there is no room on this part of my deck.
