The weekend before the trip we bought a Zodiac Zoom at Defender, and a Yamaha 4-horse for it. Never used it, never inflated it. It stayed in its bag on the bow the whole trip.
I guess different strokes for different folks. So many fun places to use a dinghy on that route, marina hopping or no. And a plethora of beautiful anchorages and mooring fields for those so inclined. To each their own!
