Getting it Up and Keeping it There

I have a 8'-3" fibreglass boatex dinghy that weighs ~80 lbs. I want to stow it on the foredeck during passages. I'm thinking about making a harness and using the spin or spare jib halyard to hoist it on board. Has anyone made a harness like this? What do people use as chocks to hold the dinghy in place on the deck and prevent gelcoat damage to the deck and dinghy rails?
