Dinghy Talk

I'm shopping and researching for a dinghy purchase. It seems like the most en vogue option is an inflatable/RIB. This makes sense, because they are so stable. It must make loading/unloading on the hook much easier.

I may not be able to afford an inflatable. My thought process is that I might be better served buying a fiberglass or plastic dinghy in new condition instead of a used inflatable in suspect condition.

Do you cruise with a Walker Bay or other rigid dinghy? Tell me about it. Do you use davits, tow, or keep on deck?

This month I will make a 280 nm trek from Islamorada to Cocoa Beach Florida.
