Re: A Couple Simple Questions Regarding Dinghies

We have been storing our 125 lb rib upside down on the foredeck for 3 years. Same procedure as TQA, only I don't think I would do it alone. Wind doesn't bother me but if it is rough it can be a PITA, and somewhat dangerous. Recently my wife got a halyard wrap on the winch with the dink swinging above the deck. I tied it off as best I could to keep it from doing any damage and went back to the cockpit to free the wrap. Most of the time it is uneventful and pretty easy. But I just put on davits. One person can do it now. I would still put it on the deck for a long passage however. Storing the dink on the foredeck is a pain when you just want to go day sailing.
