My outboard is to the starboard of my main hull, so I usually tow the inflatable off the port ama, never had a problem with it going anywhere near the prop

If the wind is likely to get over 8knots I stow it on the Port side between the ama and main hull.

The biggest problem with towing any dingy I have tried, the wake from the dingy is so much that I have to worry about no wash zones, at 6 knots the wash from the inflatable is about 10 times that from my boat, and it gets worse from there.
