I just bought a nice 40ft yacht without a tender. Unfortunately I bought a new inflatable but it's up in QLD so I'm trying not to burn cash on nothing. It's killing the excitement not being able to go out to my new boat.

Where can I get a cheap kayak or tender? Gumtree/facebook isn't working.

I even tried mona vale tip.

These any good?

www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/kingsford/tinnies-dinghies/rubber-inflatable-dinghy-quicksilver-8-/1268917585

www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/bundeena/tinnies-dinghies/aluminium-dinghy/1268651463

The bloke behind the below advert sells dinghies also i believe. Worth a call?

Councils impounded many dinghys over the last few years as part of their gouging moored boat owners for dinghy storage fees - and might have some for sale - eg Hunters Hill Council stored impounded dinghies at Henley bowling club but they might all be gone from there by now.

I should have said I'm avoiding old PVC inflatables. A waste of money taking it to the tip.

Win win, when you don't need it any more it's just a tarp and some kindling

Maybe that warwickl would bring it to you.
Would that be cheap and easy enough for you?

A long hike?? You do not have a car so you have to walk??

He is offering you free but you do not want to put yourself out. I think you are on the wrong forum bloke.

Have a tantrum. I'm very grateful. You've got issues.

Looks like OP is in Sydney as he mentions trying the Mona Vale tip.

I flew down from QLD. I don't have a car or trailer so Newcastle is a mission but how could I be anything but grateful for that kind offer? No intention to offend.

I've sorted something out so many thanks.
