Off-shore - on deck, inverted, and strongly tied down or stowed below. Short trips - tow behind with or without motor like the charterers. At night - hoisted out of the water by halyard or davits to prevent theft. Dingy should never be carried on stern davits when on an offshore passage. Should a following sea poop the dinghy, the load on those davits may exceed their capacity.
