    Comments about Sun Dolphin Water Tender 9.4 Dinghy:

    I purchased the boat to use on some small lakes in the area and some medium, slow moving rivers for fishing. At 114 pounds, I can transport it in the bed of my truck and put it in the water by myself. An electric trolling motor and pushing 45 to 50 pounds of thrust will take you wherever you want to go!

    Great for me!

    Comments about Sun Dolphin Water Tender 9.4 Dinghy:

    Pulling a camper, I needed something light and good for getting on the water. This boat is only 106 pounds so I can carry on top of my van. Yes, the transom thickness is an issue at just over 2.5 inches, but I knew that prior and made modifications by removing the inside portion of the rubber and also some work to the outside crown edge. Got it down to 2.25 inches to fit my Merc 3.5 motor. Before applying my numbers and stickers I cleaned surface with MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone) and they seem to be sticking fine. As to motors, you can use a long shaft, but a better performance would be with a short shaft motor up to 5hp.

      no attention to simple details

      By michael

      Comments about Sun Dolphin Water Tender 9.4 Dinghy:

      purchased 10 days ago, went to put my 4.5 hp mercury on the transom and it does not fit over the heavy rubber protector that is screwed to the transom. had to remove it to even get the outboard onto the transom. the transom area where there is a wood piece to brace for an outboard is not protected at all. then, i put on my Fl register sticker....it fell off. stick on numbers etc will not stick to the sides of this boat. when i called to mention these problems, the person that i talked to explained that this is how the boat is made....intentionally. go figure. the boat does float and goes well with the outboard.
