Re: DIY Dinghy Lift at Transom Location
Take a look at the Dinghy Tow concept. Essentially you'll drag your dink backwards with its transom and outboard high and dry. If your dink ever ships any water it'll only be a bow's worth and you will never need to do more than half the lifting you thought you would. Since you are handy a facsimile will be easy to make.
