Questions Regarding First Solo Cruise

Will be departing May 18th from West Palm Beach in route to West End. Will be spending two months cruising the Abacos and Eleuthra perhaps. Anyway I had some questions..
When you are single handing and have a dinghy, how do you prevent it from being stolen when you go ashore? I have a RL 260 I think that inflates in 5 minutes and weights 40 pounds. I am not sure how to secure the dinghy for a trip or day ashore. I really do not want to lug it around..
Is 20$ a realistic budget for food/drink per day, figuring in I will be bringing lots of provisions and fishing daily for fish and lobster. I figure mostly to only need fruits and veggies plus water as I dont drink much.
Can I barter what I catch on the docks at night or evening? Where would one sell his days catch?
