I was recently lucky to get a tender to get to Bilbo from the shore. I do have an inflatable dinghy but found it punctured far to easy.
I will sand the outside, coat it twice with epoxy and then paint it with yacht paint. The interior does need work but I will get around to this at some stage later.
To get it to the mooring, I will sail to Tully Pier, drop the anchor and then go ashore and row it out. Then tow it back to the mooring.
I will strengthen the seat by using epoxy and glassfibre to hold a piece on wood in the centre.
I will use a lazy mooring to keep the tender out off the shore. And a solar panel with a small battery and bilge pump to empty any rain out.
