A dinghy cover will go a long way to helping protect the dinghy from UV damage. So would Dinghy Chaps..

You can usually use one of the halyards to lift the dinghy. You may need to add a lifting harness to it though.

Just buy a decent length of floating line to make a bridle with. Make sure it is floating line, which reduces the chances of a prop wrap when you accidentally back down on the dinghy.

Rinse the sand out of the dinghy as often as possible. Sand can wear holes in the fabric pretty quickly.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
