A new addition to our fleet…

Ron’s been watching for a hard-bottomed dinghy for our use in Florida for a while now. We’ve had a number of “dinghy woes” involving older dinghies that begin deteriorating in the hot Florida sun. And though an air floor dinghy meets our needs well in our sweetwater travels, tides and opposing winds (and the waves produced) make the drier hard-bottom dinghies with their molded “keels” and larger tubes very attractive, especially on these windy days.

Yesterday Ron and our friend Don, aboard Ring of Fire,  drove to Punta Gorda and they brought this little pup home:

  
I think we’ll name her Prairie Pup.
