The UV degradation of the plastic would be my biggest concern for it. You might want to consider a stitch-and-glue wood dinghy. There are quite a few that have excellent rowing characteristics, and might be better suited for what you're doing.

When you say you're going to be gunkholing, what is the mothership vessel going to be??? That may determine what will work best for you. A Nichols NN10 might also be a good, albeit expensive, choice.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
