Re: Small, cheap, single handed dinghy.

There are a couple of topaz going on eBay close to me, but hull only, what's it going to cost and how easy will it be to find the rest?

Re: Small, cheap, single handed dinghy.

Thanks guy, some more to think about! The lightning 368 looks nice!

Is it possible to transport a small dinghy via roof rack? I'm talking very short distances, less than half a mile to beach and back?

Small, cheap, single handed dinghy.

Hi,

I'm thinking about getting a CHEAP, GRP, small single handed dinghy, have been looking at laser 1's but most are over budget, I'm looking for something around £300 or even cheaper! What else should I look at?

Thanks

Re: Hello, Newbie here with an Enterprise :)

Thank you, but when I attach the jib, and tighten it using the Highfield lever, there is little tension on the forestay anyway, so I 'think' this should not be a problem ?

Thanks for your help,

Dan.

Re: Please help me choose a dinghy cover?

So I'm thinking about going for the sail register poly cotton 'breathable' cover at £173. Anyone have anything bad to say about these? Anyone know a rough turnaround for them?
