Looking for Inflatable and Outboard

Hi guys.

I sold my Cal 34 sailboat recently and the dinghy and outboard along with it. I plan on getting a bigger fishing/diving boat in the 20'-26' range maybe sometime this summer, but for now, I most definitely need to replace the dinghy and outboard. The girl and I use float tubes for fishing, but kicked out of the marina with them (they apparently are classified as "swim aids") so we want to get an inflatable and outboard ASAP. This will also make a great boat for spearfishing and diving.

I'm looking for a hypalon boat, minimum of 10', with at least a 6HP motor, and would a prefer a 11-12' boat with a 15-25HP motor. I don't want a RIB because I want to be able to put this inside my SUV for lakes and launching from shore, and I don't have room to park a trailer. My budget is around $2000. If you have something, let me know. Thanks!

Here's a 12' Avon for a great price, just add an outboard and you're good to go.

Hey man. Thanks for those. I'm pretty much dead set against PVC though. too bad the one in venture is PVC. I'm heading out to Malibu tonight to look at two. I might buy a new Honda outboard in Oxnard tonight as well. 5 year warranty, and I'd rather have a reliable 10HP motor and an old hypalon dinghy than a nice dinghy with an old motor.

Good luck with whatever you decide on.
