"Dinghies are small boats which are put onto large ships or dragged along behind them on a rope and which are then used to get on land to fetch provisions. My Regentag dinghy originates from 1970 with its "mother ship" from Venice; it is made of fibreglass and has been patched with so many new layers that I have a hard time pulling it onto the beach alone. You can row it, use an outboard motor up to 6 hp and sail with it, too, if you lower a centreboard through the middle slit. I often use it to get home through the mangrove channel, from the boat or from Opua." (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 633)
