Re: 24' sailboat dinghy suggestions?

We have a 24' Bristol and used an 8' inflatable last year with an outboard. We towed it because even deflated we felt it was going to take up too much room, and frankly we didn't find towing it to be a big deal. We did, however, put the outboard on the stern rail.

This year we have a 9.4 Watertender from West Marine (the inflatable ended up with two large holes right at the seams - I'm suspecting a critter in the garage). Towing will be the only option, but at least we won't have to buy another dink.
