Re: Hard Dinghy Storage Aboard

I'm a traditionalist, so no velcro. I use french lashings to secure my (dyneema) lifelines to the stanchion terminations, they tension up well and don't loosen up at all. I might consult Ashely and see what he has to say.

Those are more semi-permanent, and might take a little more time on the dinghy. That said, I really only stow the dinghy aboard when going offshore. If I'm daysailing and anchoring every night, I just tow it.
