Hard Being a Dinghy

When it comes to dinghies, most people automatically think of an inflatable boat. These are by far the most common type of dinghy you will encounter, and every dinghy dock you come to visit will be packed with them.


It was such a rare occasion that we tied up at this dinghy dock in Florida next to another hard dinghy. Here in the state of Florida, you have two dinghies; one registered in Maryland, the other in Australia; tied up next to each other.

Even more special is both of us tied up to the same cleat in the same way, a bowline through the cleat.  This method of tying up allows others to tie and untie from the cleat without disturbing your dock line.

It's quite the coincidence!
