When you look to buy a dingy you have to consider first the length.
It has to be close to 8 feet as possible.
Second. you want the biggest diameter of tubes you can get.
Third. The more numbers of chambers to inflate the better. Find one with four chambers exclude the Bottom and keel.
Fourth. you want a hard bottom.
The weight is important but not as it looks at first. If you pick up the dingy with the halyard and winch the weight of 8 feet dingy is none issue. I have a friend a single hander that does it time and again with a nine and a half feet dingy. Made me to regret buying a dingy with inflated bottom.
