I agree that 8' inflatables are worth having. They handle 4 people and gear easily. Sometimes you need to shuttle heavy things so you'd have the capacity.

You might want to consider dinghies with inflatable floorboards. They are light but have a great load capacity. When I am going offshore for more than 3 days I deflate it and roll it up for the trip. It is easy to find space to store it. On my PSC 34, I installed 4 eyebolts just forward of the forepeak cabin and lashed it there. Redeployment takes 15 minutes to half an hour.

I purchased an Achilles LSI to replace my Zodiac with an inflatable floor that had died of old age. I'm very happy with it.
