Yup...HS has it right...you can rig it to make the lifting easy but the momentum and added windage when hoisting in a wind will be pretty impossible for one person to control.
It sounds as though your cruising grounds are acceptable for travelling with the dink on davits and the 42 is weighty enough that I don't think the equivilent of me sitting on your stern is going to affect performance. You can fit a tarp to protect the dink even on davits. Then you can also leave the motor on as well which will be more convenient.
