Introducing a new member of the boat fleet: Jake II.  The new, bigger deck boxes up forward on Willow wouldn’t allow our old dinghy to nestle up there anymore, plus a smaller, lighter dinghy would be easier to launch and handle.  The old dinghy also had sailing gear: rudder, keel, mast, and sail.  We actually sailed it TWICE in all those years;  the second photo shows a fun dinghy race we made with friends in the Cook Islands.  I guess when you sail the main vessel all those miles it takes the desire out of sailing the dinghy around, when it’s convenient to use the oars and small outboard.  It’ll also help clean out the clutter when we move back onboard.
