On our trips throughout the Caribbean we had a fiberglass dinghy (8ft.stowed
on deck) and a Avon Redcrest inflatable (under deck) on our 33 ft. sloop.
Now on my 32ft. sailboat we have a Zodiac roll up with a 4 HP outboard (easy to lift up) for our trips on the Gulf coast USA and trips to/fm Central
America. Advantage of an inflatable is that you can put it inside when you
expect bad weather or on deck , -towing is not an option due to the drag.
Hard dinghy is less damage prone, you can tow it in save waters but on
deck it obstructs the view.
