OSPREY – KACHEMAK BAY, ALASKA
I purchased a SOLAS 4.0 as a dingy for the sloop “Osprey” home port Kachemak Bay, Homer Alaska. I powered it with a 20 hp Honda four stroke engine and that configuration will maintain 23 mph with three persons on board. The SOLAS is very stable and soon found many additional duties out side the ship to shore transportation that it was intended for. We have let it sit outside in Alaska winter and summer with no damage.
