It will make a great river raft or fishing yacht.  What ever your pleasure.  Dominick

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

I was thinking a sled to get me, and my flyrod, out to the triangle flats, ~150yd paddle and duel service life raft for the big boat.

 You are welcome to it Dwight.  BTW, I am planning an offshore charter for late July.  LMK if you will be around and are interested in joining us.  Cheap fishing.

Nice John, cheap on gas.

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

Need to move the bouncy toy so we can see the rest of it.

Wait a minute! It's the raft ...not the red kayak? Shocked

Where's the patch kit?

The price was right.  We will see how it works in practice Smiley

Somehow I don'the think it is going to track very well, and I hope I am not stuck floating in it in the middle of the open Pacific clutching my EPIRB.  

Then again, I might be glad I have it onboard.

I love it John. Hope you hook up with a big cow and it pulls you around like flypaper....that would be a blast !!

 Looks like a wet ride either way, so I'd say a good drybag is in order.

In all seriousness.. I am trying to decide between a Newport27 Sailboat,

and a Dyer 33 downeast style w/a low hours 200hp Yanmar.

http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1978/Dyer--2074411/Honolulu/HI/United-States#.V3nCOnpujqA

I really want a boat to be able to get out on the water and wet some lines, but I am on a limited budget.  I will likely need a partner to ease the pain a bit on the powerboat.

Thoughts?

You can use the inflatable as a mooring tender.  The slip rent on those big boys would be expensive.  The Newport looks like a lot of boat for the money.  If it weren't for your reel collection you could live there.  Best of luck with it all.
