New to crusing

I just bought a Catalina 27, 1982 vintage but restored with recent (40 hrs since OH). I am on MS gulfcoast and plan to go south, off shore and Intercoastal to about keywest and return.
I need a skiff for me (245lbs) and the wife, some bit lighter. I dare not mention her weight Ha Ha.

What do you crusiers recommend. A rubber dinghey or alum skiff about 14 ft with small outboard say a 6 hp? I am shopping and have only about $1000 left to spend on dinghey.


P.S. I will be towing. No lifts or davits.
