Re: Hard Dinghy Storage Aboard
Thanks. I like that idea. I'm not looking forward to drilling, bolting, glassing, or otherwise having to do alot of invasive work on the deck, so I wonder if I can't just affix the blocks to the dinghy and allow the pressure from the lashings hold the whole thing down? I lashed the inflatable to the teak rails, the mast step, and my two inboard anchor rode cleats and that seemed to work.
yan, you might look into some hard rubber blocks (sometimes sold to carry canoes in car rooftops) that can be velcroed or affixed down to the deck, to keep the dink raised off direct contact. Then it is a matter of installing some d-rings in a convenient location to make sure it can be lashed down solidly.
