A dinghy and outboard combination is essential cruising gear – the dinghy is used for transportation, recreation, safety and so much more. This seminar will help you navigate the available options to find your best fit. From mounting the outboard to getting your dinghy onto the plane, we’ll provide tips for safe operation and creative applications for the dinghy. You’ll learn how to keep your dinghy secure, both onboard and ashore. You’ll learn how to tow a dinghy, and how to hoist it onboard with a halyard, davits or crane.  Finally, we’ll cover troubleshooting, and care & maintenance essentials.
