Even though we are going to be in the tropics, we are probably going with a West Marine PVC inflatible. One of the biggest reasons for doing this is that dinghies get stolen- a lot. I'd rather risk having a dinghy that will only last 3-4 years for under $1,000 than having a superb hypalon that will last 10+ years for almost double that amount that gets stolen because the thieves know that a hypalon boat is far more valuable.
I'm also considering painting the dink hot pink to discourage theft. lol
