I'm planning a two week trip on Lake Powell and need a solution for getting ashore, as dry as possible, with expensive camera gear. I'm reluctant to beach my 2006 Sig 276, and besides, there will be locations (Reflection Canyon, for instance) where there are no beaches nearby. I bought an inflatable kayak from Costco, but is was way too tipsy. I've seen small, "zodiac" style inflatables (West Marine), but they are pricey. I'm a big guy, so launching from swim platform has its challenges anyway, but finding a good solid ship to shore inflatable is a must.
Wondering if anyone out there can suggest a compact Davit solution for a 2008 sig 290. My tender is 10' and around 130 lbs, just purchased and not 100% sure if a davit is necesarry. The way I see it is that if there is not an easy way to bring the tender with us on trips then we just won't get the use out of it. But with small kids getting off the boat and running into the beach for an afternoon gives us more time on the water not to mention sanity by letting the kids run around. Also I am not hoping to not give up a lot of real estate on my swim platform any suggestions? Pictures are als
