The Dinks
Three models of high quality eight foot yacht tenders designed for the discriminating yachtsman. Built to high-quality hand-laid fiberglass standards with unique features not found in other tenders this size. Featuring a white outside hull and a full gel coat inner liner in a non-reflecting, non-skid beige with black gunnel guard on top and side and accented by a center mahogany seat. A six-inch band of foam 1 1/2" thick provides gunnel flotation between the sides and inner liner. Additional foam flotation is placed in both the front and rear tanks. Other features include chrome oar lock sockets with nylon inserts, a bow towing ring backed by an aluminum plate, an interior to exterior hull drain, a motor mount block and a deep skeg for positive towing control. The sail version utilizes a mahogany plywood daggerboard, rudder and centerboard trunk cover. The mast is two pieces and stores inside the boat. Sails are offered in two color combinations, red/white or blue/white. Additional options include a davit ring kit, five foot wooden oars, round chrome oar locks, horns and a blue acrylic boat cover.
Three high quality eight foot double hull tenders designed for the discriminating yachtsman. Each model designed to fit a particular need, a traditional hard chime, a cathedral tri-hull, or a row/sail combination. Priced well within the yachtsman's budget and representing a cut above the conventional chop glass dinghy.
All three models of The Dink offer unique double hull design which includes enclosed gunnel floatation within the sides. The interiors of each model sport a non-glare, non-skid finish accented by a mahogany seat and black gunnel rail. Or lock sockets, motor mount block and bow towing ring are standard.
The eight foot Row, by far the most popular Dink, features a hard chime, a deep towing skeg, and weighs in at only 85 lbs. The perfect tender to row or motor. An excellent value in an all around general purpose dinghy.
The eight foot Tri-Hull, a wider, more stable design to accommodate the needs of the yachtsman desiring stability and more useable space. Weighing in at only 95 lbs., the Tri-Hull offers the maximum useable space in an 8' Dink.
