I am awaiting delivery of a Hanse 418. Due to the self tacking jib I suspect it will not be possible to leave an inflated tender at the bow and am told it is usually placed under the boom. Can anyone share their experience and tell me what size max I should be looking at pls? Thanks a lot

We found 2.7mtr tender sits well on 418 coach roof but the downside is visibility very poor over the top so we tend to deflate or tow it if only going short distances.

We have a Zodiac Fastroller 285.  It has an inflatable floor, which when pumped hard, does stick up a bit.  We used to keep it on the foredeck and it cleared the foot of the job, but took up a lot of deck space making forward movement to the bow a bit tight.

It was ok when we lowered it off the deck and towed it.  We have now gone to storing it under the boom.  Yes, it does impede forward vision a bit, but by favouring it to the port side a little and tying down to the grab rails, the starboard passage forward is clear and the vision up starboard side is clear when driving from engine controls.

There was a previous thread on this so a search might find all the previous comments.

Search under Inflatable Dinghy in the 415/418 forum for the earlier comments from a few people.  It was from February this year.

Hi all,

In The Netherlands we hardly need a tender, we always stay in a marina. However for sailing trips to the UK a tender is needed in case you need to use a mooring (bouy), or use an anchored pontoon. To avoid the 'bulky' tender on deck (stowed transversally under the boom) we had our sail maker make a more usable bag:
- watertight
- larger than the original bag, No idea how anyone could get his dinghy back in that bag
- stronger material & webbings
- with lugs in each corner of the bag bottom to secure it safely to the boat
(don't mention the ugly rope used to secure it, I still need to install the 4 padeyes)

This way it hampers our view much less, and makes handling main sail easier.
With the 12v-230V converter I installed and an electric air pump it takes 11 minutes to get the tender inflated an ready to launch.

Short range we still stow it fully inflated on deck when sailing at sea, or tow it when we're on inland waters.
Henk

We have our 310 dinghy stored on the bow, and it does not interfere with the selftacking jib. However, we need to push it approx. 50 cm backwards when we need to get to the anchor locker. Not a big deal. However, the hatches are quite delicate and sooner or later some thin scratches will appear, which doesn't bother us too much. We find tis solution better than constantly towing or always deflating the dinghy.

We have a Takacat 260 sport which we store under the boom, visability is not a problem. It is easy to lift onto the deck 23kgs with two of us and I can launch it on my own. Highly recommend. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1jJPALoNDY
Also it is easy to deflate and store inside in the winter months or when you wont be using it.
