Re: Towing vs carrying a Rib on board

You could try something like these for getting the engine on/off:

I've seen other solutions similar to the Davron ones mentioned above, and I think they let the dinghy sit sideways and then pivot up. Put another way, I thought I saw that the port/starboard side of the dinghy would be grabbed/attached to the "hinge" next to the boat's transom, then the opposite side of the dinghy is lifted (via a line and block) up and out of the water. This let it sit lower and have less windage than the Davron solution. Of course, off the top of my head now, I can't remember where I saw that.
