Dinghys and where to put them?

I got a couple of questions for off shore sailors.

I have seen the dinghy(D) hanging from arches from the rear of the boat. Some without motors, and some with.

How much wind is that D going to catch?

Is it realistic to keep the motor on the D?

Put the motor on the rail?

In another post I read where someone was told they had a 2 year D vs what a real cruisers buy which is a quality D that will last indefinitely.

What are some of the quality D?

Inflatable vs Solid Design?

I have seen some fiberglass cats, any opinions?

Thanks for your thoughts.
