Wasn't referring to RIBs. But it looks like rigid dinghys will work with a flotation collar.

Hard Dinghies without inflatable tubes:
Hard dinghies (not to be confused with rigid bottom inflatable dinghies) cannot be towed by Dinghy-Tow unless there is enough flotation at the bow to support it if the bow section is filled with water. A closed cell flotation collar around the gunnel with additional flotation at the bow should be adequate.
