I am looking for an inflatable dinghy for getting my beer to the beach on daysails/weekending. I'm looking at two craigslist options at the moment,
An older Avon for $200 with no leaks but no outboard
Avon Dinghy 10 Foot
and an Achilles for $450 where the inflatable keel has a leak and has an included outboard (with no promise that it runs)
Achilles LSI 88 8' dinghy with Nissan 5hp outboard
My initial thoughts are that the Achilles is a better deal IF I am lucky and the outboard works, or if I can repair it. Possibly can also get it for cheaper than listed because the seller discovered the air leak in the keel after listing it.
Otherwise I can just row the Avon until I find a deal on an outboard. Anyone know how that boat would row?
Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated as I have no experience with inflatables.
