Hi David, Good luck with new boat...I usually get on/off
dinghy from cockpit as it is lower than bow and walk dinghy forward or aft. Also dinghy a little more steady/protected brought along lee side of boat and can be secured to make transfer a little less of an adventure.
I always try to lower myself and gear nice and easy and
transfer weight gradually...same with switching places
holding on to mothership to dampen wave motion and
transfer.
Come on down for a sail or we'll sail part way.
Best, Hugo
