What are small boats called?
Dinghy. A dinghy is a small boat, usually 7-12 feet in length.
They are usually powered by oars, small outboards, or sails. Often carried or towed by a larger boat for going ashore.
Traditional sailboats are monohulls, but multi-hull catamarans and trimarans are gaining popularity.
Monohull boats generally rely on ballast for stability and usually are displacement hulls.
This stabilizing ballast can, in boats designed for racing, be as much as 50% of the weight of the boat, but is generally around 30%.
It creates two problems; one, it gives the monohull tremendous inertia, making it less maneuverable and reducing its acceleration.
Secondly, unless it has been built with buoyant foam or air tanks, if a monohull fills with water, it will sink. 01623 799 309
