Hello,

I am wondering if anyone is using or has built a tender doubling as a cockpit for the T26.

I am trying to figure out how and where to carry a dinghy on the T26. The boat will be anchored on a tidal beach most of the time. I am considering a 10' rowable canoe or a 6' punt to carry in front of the mast. The dinghy should be light enough to be carried on the shoulder down the beach to the water's edge.

What are your solutions for the tender?

Thanks

My tender is a Tinker foldaway RIB, which stows neatly ahead of the mast.  When it's there it reduces the amount of spray reaching the cockpit.  This tender also has a sailing rig on a four part mast.

Thanks Robert,

I want to avoid something that could be stolen very quickly. I take note of the spray protection. I had thought of that too.

What are the dimensions of your Tinker? Your boat looks stunning!

Check out a Folding dinghy from here. I want to build an Origami for my 21 to keep on rear tramp. I just use my SUP as a dinghy now and like it a lot. 

Portabote is a good, albeit $$$$$ option

Hi

by choice I am on a small budget. Every bought item ends up in the bin sooner or later.

At the moment I am intrigued by the one sheet dinghies. They are very light and can be quite attractive. They are quick to build and should fit in front of the mast. An example: http://hvartial.kapsi.fi/ossauray/auray_u.htm 7'2" x 3'3"

I'm able to pack an inflatable into the front hatch on my 21. It's not a top quality inflatable, but a medium quality vinyl thing. It's quite big, and I'm thinking of getting another smaller one which will pack down even smaller in the hatch.

I use a proper tender to get to the boat, which I then leave on the mooring. So I only need something to take on trips where I need to get to shore.
