Have to agree with Minne. I hate towing an infltable dinghy in any weather other than when moving a very short distance. Even in harbour I'll tend to pull the inflatable on deck. Hard dinghy not so bad to tow but don't like doing it under sail.
Mate of ours keeps his dink in davits even for coastal passages but I'm not a fan of the arrangement.
