Re: A Couple Simple Questions Regarding Dinghies

I carry my 140 lb rib on the foredeck on passage. Lift it using the painter and a halyard to a mast winch. Crank it up and flip it when near vertical so the tubes are against the topsides. Keep carnking till it clears the lifelines then drop it on the foredeck.

Easy with 2 people and doable on my own even in 15 knts.
