Please chime in regarding choices for inexpensive dingy and motor. Also wondering if a small kayak or canoe might be an affordable and manageable option. Have seen paddle boards kept somehow on-top of covered walkway roof.

Try transferring between the swim platform and a kayak. It can be tricky.

Here's a link to another thread with my posted solution that works well for my situation. You might find it helpful. At $500, it's the best current value in dinks. My 15 HP Merc scoots it right along at about 19 kts WOT, 12-15 kts cruise.
