I've always admired the smaller of the American-built Dwyer dinghies... But
they're not cheap. One usually gets what one pays for.
I bought an Optimist dinghy from our club's sailing school when they
replaced our fleet - I thought it would make a good dink but it's too low to
be elegantly converted to rowing. So I had an 18" extension welded onto the
mast and put the rig in our Boston Whaler 'Squall'. The Squall is still a
damned beer barrel to tow, but sails much better than with the Sunfish rig
it was originally supplied with.
