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.

Then it is a matter of installing some d-rings in a convenient location to make sure it can be lashed down solidly.
