Re: [Amel] dinghy for a 54


Christoph Hartung <Hartung@...>
 

Dear Jeff,

since we decided to use a dinghy which is at least 3m long (now 3,20m) with a solid bottom, we bought for our 54 electric operated davids.
This was one of the best decisions we did when we purchased our 54 in 2007. The boat is now in the Caribbean and we use the dinghy every day. Moving it up and done with the engine fitted, because we need to prevent it from thefts.
Yes, it is an expensive installation, but if you travel worldwide and you may be not the youngest any more, this installation is a must!

Christoph
AMEL 54, #59

I recently purchased Joel's 54, "Hollis." She is now "Spirit." I'm proceeding slowly with additions to Spirit, and one of the first additions will be an RIB. I've done some preliminary homework, and thought I'd see if any 54 owners had input regarding their choices of one, and their thoughts on what RIB was the best fit. I was interested in the AB Ventus, and wondered about fit. I will be back on Spirit in a week or so to measure the stern locker, but for now, I'll go with any input from other 54 owners.

Thanks in advance. Jeff Kraus
