Inflating the Zodiac inflatable dinghy for the first time

Posted By on March 4, 2011

dink110303I spent the day working on boat projects … and enjoying the sunny 70 degree temperature of Florida. The winds have been blowing and gusting and making the forecast less than attractive for sailing as my son is coming down over his spring college break (the reason I’m here). Still, there is plenty of work to be done on the boat.

Besides working on the electrical issue and my Navman depth/speed/log instruments, I’m rigging up a better and more seaworthy generator mount in the engine room. This required cutting some new flooring material and picking up some stainless steel hardware for the ‘hopeful’ installation on Friday. I also pulled out and cleaned up the aging Zodiac which at this point does look as if it will hold air for at least a few hours … although it isn’t in the best of shape and I didn’t check to see if it would float. (maybe a future boat show special purchase???)
