Has anyone found a suitable dinghy to carry on deck that fits behind the staysail stay and spans the sissy bars at the mast? And will actually carry 2 people and supplies without taking a soaking each time you drive in it???
And might even plane?? Arrrrgh.

Well, thank you for all the thoughtful responses! As a follow up, I'll let you know we decided on a 9' AB w/ aluminum floor. The weight of 75# is acceptable to my aging winch cranking arm and our 8HP Yamaha is a good match. We decided we are willing to detach the staysail stay and sacrifice that sail option to make extra deck space for days we can't / won't tow the dink. Lord knows the Yankee was all we needed last season in Bahamas! Hopefully we've made a good decision. I think we will be looking into a mattress pump, as that's a great idea!
