BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


A dinghy can be defined as a small watercraft that is often used for emergencies or ship to shore transportation. The term "dinghy" is often conflated with "tender" which has commercial connotations.

Meaning


Dinghies can be rowed, mechanically, or sail powered and are often inflatables. Although not always the case, dinghies and tenders are not usually large enough to qualify for vessel documentation.

Context


Most larger boats will carry or tow a dinghy to be used when at anchorage, in emergencies, or for short excursions. When used in commercial fishing operations they are most often referred to as "tenders". Whether state level registration is required depends on the size, usage, and configuration. Such rules vary considerably among the respective jurisdictions.

Conclusion


The state summary pages found in the above WikiTags and will offer clues and links on how to determine the operational requirements for dinghies and tenders.
