Good advice. I see how fixed lifting points would be better than slings, especially when it's windy / rough. There are two sets of oarlocks and the ones near the stern might serve well for that; the painter provides a third lifting point.

When having no choice but to hoist it alone, I was thinking to use the spinnaker / whisker pole as a boom to keep the dinghy off the hull.

I'd like to get some more ideas on chocks. I don't want to bolt to (thru) the deck if I don't have to.
