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.
Hi, Welcome to Sailnet, and congrats on your new boat!

May I suggest that you start a new thread to discuss this dinghy issue? I think your question will get lost in this thread and you may not get the answers/advice you're hoping for. Good luck!
