Keeler Dinghies

For our friends who no longer are able to have a trailer under their Yacht ;-) and we all use a mast and sails at the end of the day (or start of the day!!)

Keeler Dinghies

Had more dinghies than I care to mention, the latest is a 4mm ply epoxy that fits on the foredeck. Very light and easy to move around, thin enough that you can walk around side decks and get to anchor locker etc.

Have since put a smaller foam pad at rear to level it out. It can be flipped to sail with on deck, but generally this dinghy is to go around west head to Cowan etc and not tow - for further afield we would use an inflatable, or davits when I get to it.

they look awesome but i suspect i still couldn't fit it under my boom but maybe it's time to move my mainsail higher up the mast and see what happens surely the boat wont fall over.
