OldColumbia is on a distinguished road
When our 9'2 Severn ( BoatUS) dink and 4HP Suzuki are on the davits, we always secure it to the pushpit and stern cleats with the painter and stern lines we attached to each of the dink tubes.
The stern lines keep the dink level and when secured properly, allows the water that inevitably collects under the floor boards to drain aft thru the transom drain which is left unplugged.

Any other long passage means putting it inverted on the foredeck and OB on the rail pad.
