In FL I have found a lot of dinghies on craigslist. Might have to try different search terms: dinghy
, inflatable, RIB
, etc to avoid reading through dozens of listings. Click here for listings in the space coast area. space coast boats - all classifieds - craigslist
Now comes down to what kind. RIBs are faster, drier, carry more load than the same size soft dinghy
but take more room to stow. Soft bottom dinks you can roll up and store below or take home and put it in the garage.
On your boat you have a least two options, on the fore deck
and on the stern. I've seen a lot of power boats, mainly those with swim platforms, that lay the dinghy sideways across the swim platform then tilt it up to the transom.
