Davits on a PSC 34

This is a spin on my previous post.

Given my concern of losing a dinghy being towed behind my boat I'm leaning towards an onboard stowage option. Haven't measured the distance between mast and dodger but don't want to cover up my aft hatch if I can avoid it.

I know everything on a sailboat is a compromise, however I don't want to give up. I am considering the possibility of a pair of swing out Davits that I could suspend a rib from. Too much weight possibly. Not really sure. Perhaps inflatable is my only option. Along with an outboard lift.

Does anyone have any experience with this on a PSC 34' ? Again I have a Monitor Windvane which may compromise this type of arrangement. Obviously when Windvane is in use I will need to stow dinghy in another fashion, but this would be for longer passages.

Also I'm hoping and thinking that a lift could be attached to a vertical stansion but just not sure.
