It would be great to have some pictures. I have a dog so the dinghy always comes with us no matter where we go. I also have a motor hoist and when I lift up the dink I always take the motor off and store it on the Edson motor mount on the stern rail. The davits can hold the weight but when I hit some choppy stuff it bounces around and that seems like too much abuse for the davits and stern rail.
