Re: Recommend a Dinghy for Cruising Caribbean

Get a hypalon rib, [NO PVC NOT EVER] AB or Caribe are the favoured makes out here in the Caribbean.

An 8 ft model with an ali floor is the lightest option and plane with a 10hp.

BUT the heavier 9 ft ribs do better in a chop and a 15 or 18 will pop you up on a plane in a headwind with a load of shopping and some light fouling on the bottom.
