Hello everyone! 
My new 315 has been delivered and I can't wait for spring to arrive.
I'm in the middle of deciding which dinghy to buy, and would like some advice.
What size?  Inflatable or RIB or rigid?
To tow, or not to tow...that is the question.

We have a Honwave dingy various sizes available. We have a Mariner 2.5/3 HP outboard.
 
More than up to the job of taking crew ashore.
 
For a few years we stored the dingy on deck just in front of the spray hood. It was always a pain to inflate and launch from there.
 
We have embraced fully the cruising life and now blow the dingy up on land at the beginning of the season and tow it behind us. Have found this so much easier no matter what the weather.
 
The outboard is stowed in the aft locker not on the dingy
 
Hope this helps

Hi

I originally bought a Suzumar 2.3 inflatable to get me from dockside to my mooring, but unfortunately it was stolen. I replaced it with a less expensive "Trans-E" 2.3 which came with a 3 year guarantee and has served me well for the past two seasons, along with a 3hp outboard. I've always towed the dinghy but over the winter I've been on the lookout for an inexpensive method to lift her out at the stern (maybe davits) to lessen drag.

Enjoy your new Hanse.

Hi Rob,

I'm picking up my new 315 on Tuesday, quite excited about that.  

I've a lightweight inflatable (at least thats how it was sold, seems quite heavy to me), planning to store that on the coachroof and will see how I get on with that.

cheers,


jon

Congratulations Jon!
Between the boom vang, the compass, the hatches, and the exposed halyards and reefing lines on the coachroof I am thinking of towing.  Which, to me, means my choice of dinghy has expanded to every possible kind of dinghy that tows well.
I've been looking at the Portland Pudgy.  http://www.portlandpudgy.com/
Does anyone have one, and would you recommend it?

Hi RoB,
compliments for your beautiful boat!
My 2006 315 has two tender (one at a time LOL);1) Eurovinil 240 rollable, 27 years old, very good, very light. When rolled it's stoved in main locker; when ready to use on the deckhouse (see picture) between vang and sprayhood.  2) Almar 185, shorter but more 'fat', with inflatable keel and wooden floor; a bit heavier, more 'dry' and fast; it's difficult to stove, and his place is like the Eurovinikl BUT with no sprayhhod (it's shorter and larger); the picture (White  one)  a larger model with the same structure.
Outboard: Johnson 3.3 2 stroke 25 years old  and no problems. No reverse gear: simple, perfect, very light.
 
Fair winds and following seas!

We have a Zeepter 270 which is more or less like any China Inflatable. Airdeck and not too heavy. It tows very well. I should have taken the aluminium deck instead since the boat is than much stiffer.

I find our dinghy too heavy and too big to put in on deck, once in a while I lift it to the transom. I find the idea of having two dinghis very smart: For holidays I would choose a light RIB which is still the better boat and for spring and fall a light rowing dinghy. 

For the holiday I don't see any need to put the dinghy on deck but for storing during the week it would be nice. For the weekends a simple decent rowing dinghy would be enough.

Since this year we have a 6HP 4 Stroke engine which is enough for fast motoring. Before we had a 4HP 2 Stroke engine. Very light for the power but still not enough to get in fast mode. So too big to be small and too small to have enough power. The choice was between an old very light 2HP engine (water cooled, not the loud Honda 2,3!) or the biggest 1Zylinder engine with 26kg. Since we have an Optimist for our children as well we choose the big engine which we are planning to take for our holidays and for education. 
We also tested a Torqeedo 800 cruise which was in a way impressive but since you always use it full power the accus don't last long enough.

Difficult decisions and always a compromise...

Thanks Rob, likewise congratulations to you.  The Pudgy does look interesting, and even doubles as a liferaft, I've not seen one before.
