Re: Tender Amel 54 #dinghy
Thanks Nick. I do recall the anchorage where we met. I think you were having some issues with your Genoa. I think you figured it out the solution in your sleep at night.
What size and model Caribe do you have? How does it fit on the Davits and how’s the ride in chop and breeze? We usually take long excursions either exploring or going for dives, kite surfing etc.
Hope to see you in another anchorage in the future.

Hi Mohammad, Hi Aty,
We very briefly met as you were leaving when we were both anchored off Corfu town last summer.
I bought Amelia with her Caribe included and it is still going strong. Hypalon pontoons and GRP rigid hull. I highly recommend this brand.
In my opinion Hypalon is well worth the extra expense. I also believe that if you have the habit of leaving an aluminium hulled rib in the water the whole time corrosion and adhesion of the pontoons to the hull can be a problem. If however you are in the habit of hoisting the dinghy on your davits every evening that may not be a consideration.
