Hard dinghy dock storage

We have a Walker Bay 8. Currently it is stored on the foredeck of our 34 ft''er. It covers the foredeck hatch which presents a problem as we have a Nicro solar vent installed in the foredeck hatch which now receives next to no light thus does not charge.

Our marina, like most, does not allow dock dinghy storage. The dinghy racks are a long walk from our boat. Some folks have built racks that fit in front of their boats for their inflatables. To get our dinghy off the foredeck while we are in the slip but not keep it in the water I am think about building something similiar for the Walker Bay.

Has anyone ever seen such a rack for a hard dinghy?

Thanks!

David

Hard dinghy dock storage

Well David I think first you have to make up your mind about where else you might sacrifice some space. The stern is the most likely spot. You could use your main lift and with a smooth bar made of aluminum tube heavy wall mounted past the stern you could pull the dink up use the tube as a slide which would have the bow sticking in the air and your view from the cockpit would be the bottom of the dink.But it would be on your boat and the marina cant say you cant do that.I am waiting for someone to say something to us about our dink which we have hanging between two cleats from our pier but in our slip. We have a high pier and then low fingers here in New Orleans.
