What To Carry in the Dinghy (BR Podcast 23)


When you’re living on a boat away from a dock, the dinghy is your car.

You use it to go back and forth to shore, and also for fun little explorations.

    Men aren’t as safely conciouncicus as women are. I won’t get in a dingy without a lifejacket and oars. If you go on land or are going to someone else’s boat, turn on your anchor light before you leave and take a flashlight.
