    Default Who has a "little" boat?

    I mean a dinghy, or a little Flying Junior, Banshee, centerboard daysailer?

    I wanna see what you've got.

    I'm missing my skerry.

    At 32 pounds, the strip plank Wee Lassie built by David Barrett is the lightest. Henry, the Corgi, was three pounds heavier.

    I found this Penobscot 14 in a neighbor's garage. The neighbor's godfather gave it to him. He can't find the title for either the boat or the trailer but is talking to the family - if he can find the paperwork I'll probably buy it. I've been jonesin' to get a little boat for a long time.

    There's also an OK Dinghy up in Petaluma that is only $350. I'm tempted to go have a look if this P14 doesn't pan out.

    The strip plank kayak (at 50 pounds) is a one-off version a well-designed Mariner Max kayak. The rotomolded Jackson Rogue kayak (at about 65 pounds) is better suited for bouncing off the rocks in the Kern River whitewater.

    Interestingly, these two kayaks have opposite turning chacteristics. The Rogue turns on the inside edge while the Mariner Max turns on the outside edge to go in the same direction.

    This McKenzie River drift boat goes up in weight to about 170 pounds. The pointy end is not the bow. The broad end goes downriver first. The rocker allows the boat to pivot easily in standing waves. Great platform for fly fishing - stable as a dock. The oars are used to turn the boat and pull away from rocks and other obstacles.

    I was visiting Idaho a few weeks ago and every fourth car seemed to be towing a drift boat. Really made me want one.

    Well, if we're counting kayaks then here is my #3 boat....the orange one. I think my son abandoned the red one in Washington DC somewhere.
