I particularly like Scarlett. Great for toodling around with, and then shoving loads of sail on for fun.

Go anywhere type of dinghy with a bit of style.

You can find a decent 30' sailboat these days for a few k. But a usable hard dinghy for sale is as scarce as hens teeth. 

I bet you could sell this fixer-upper

I have a nice 8' fiberglass rowing dinghy from the 1970s that I'm selling.  I have corrected some of the amateurish repairs (such as seats in 1" solid mahogany) to reduce weight to a mere 115 pounds, and have installed new foam for flotation.

Usable?  Not for me, but perfect for a couple of twentysomething gym bunnies.

If you were closer, I'd tell my daughter. They got the boat for $1 (from her brother) but haven't found a dinghy. Your last line is right, she is now 31 so perhaps has aged through that window. Plus she has a boyfriend and his best friend Tony, that weighs 50#.  I know she needs something longer but she would jump on 8'.

Everybody has to learn about dinghy and dog sizes, on their own,...
