What's better, a life raft or the dinghy with the 10 or 15 hp engine on it?

My dink is strapped to the foredeck when I'm doing a crossing, but sure as chips I would have it in the water with the outboard on it, tethered to the life raft.

A dinghy with a good outboard can get you to passing ships, islands, out of currents or into currents. Most importantly if a rescue plane does drop a pizza you can get to it.
