Any dinghy is too big when you're not in it and too small when you are.

Re: When Is Your Dinghy Too Big ?

We have always towed a dinghy of at least 6 feet along to get around (to and from shore) as we draw just over 6feet as well.

I think as long as you can haul it up on the deck, when necessary, then is does not matter how big it is.

Besides, the bigger the better.
