Inflatable kayak on board

How many of you carry an inflatable kayak either instead of or in addition to the dinghy.
If there is more than one person aboard and you are anchored out and someone want to go ashore with just one dinghy the rest of the people are stranded on the boat.

It seems like an inflatable kayak doesn't take much room and might be a good "second car". What do you thing?
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
