A while ago we discussed what to do if our boats broke down out on the lake. I've just realised I was daft. I gave away 2 three man inflatable dinghies but should have kept one.I could have used one if I got stuck. It seems like the only recovery method not mooted.Either inflated at the pond/lakeside or carried inflated to it. What does everyone think?👍

You could always build a get-out-of-trouble springer tug model. So, when you get into trouble, you could send in the cavalry.

John, welcome to the 'League of Daft Gentlemen'.
I threw out two inflatables a few years ago, 2 man dinghy and a Kayak.
Have regretted it ever since 😭

Moot point Doug as it is still in existence and I know the bloke who has it. So it could actually still ship the motor. You choose. "Yer pays yer munny" etc John😜👍
