To get off the boat to shore, we have a fleet of 4 small boats we can use.
The main one, that we call the dinghy, is a 12ft Aluminium skiff that we have since Mexico in 2011 and who is showing it’s age. It is a light weight fishing boat that we row around. It can carry up to 6 or 7 people in calm condition. It is really beat and hopefully we hope to find a replacement soon.
Then we have a 2 sea kayaks.
The first one is a proper sea kayak that can be used for long distance paddling, or even big wave surfing, but being thermoformed plastic it is fairly fragile for everyday use.
The second one is a real workhorse, a rotomolded plastic from a company in Tahiti. We use it the most.
And then we have a blue plywood canoe we bought in Philippines, in 2017.
