Our new rowing/sailing dinghy

We are very excited to add a Ranger 11 to our fleet!  This sweet, little rowing/sailing dinghy was loaned to us all summer, by a good friend.  Our kids have been enjoying learning to sail a small vessel, and we’ve all enjoyed the quiet and tranquility – as well as versatility and functionality of a rowing tender.  So many anchorages are filled with the sound of inflatable tenders with outboard motors on them.  When did we get in such a hurry?

So, when the opportunity came at the end of the summer to purchase the little boat, we jumped on it!  A few days later, I set out to repaint her to coordinate her color scheme with the big boat, and give her a much needed freshening up.  We think she’s looking pretty sharp!
