Test run with Ken
Ken and I did a test run of kiting off of the boat. It went well. We found that we are quite compatible, there was room for the gear, etc.
We did find that the dinghy had JUST enough room for the gear and the two of us, and would be only marginally adequate for getting us to kiting spots that are more than a mile from the anchoring spot. Anchoring near the kiting spot might result in puting the boat in more jeopardy by anchoring on a lee shore, so it is not a great plan. We did it, but a bigger dinghy may be in order.
Refrigeration was a problem, but I since did some troubleshooting and the system is vastly improved.
