A real pooping isn't just a bit of foam from astern It can hit like the many tons of fast water it is. If the dink was on davits ,it's gone.Now it's too late to lash upside down on the deck.But if you are a fairwheather, a few miles from harbour, with an eye on the weatherfax, towing the zod is easy. I often find them drifting in the Salish Sea.
