I seem to recall looking into a system that used the swim platform and some pulleys to secure the dingy to the stern. I was unable to find the link.

Cam-

I think the boat I mentioned was using the Dinghy Tow system.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The dinghy davits that came with my boat (backing plates beefed by me, stainless steel 1/4 inch, 5x8 inch plates added to plywood) cause my boat to slam side to side in the chop we get on the Ches. Bay, I've retied the lines to produce a diagonally shaped more rigid tie down by crossing the lines, but it still slams on PB wakes from abeam.
I'm wondering if I can tow by using the davits to hoist the stern up and leave the bow in the water? - I'd have to be watchful on backing as my outdrive only draws 20 inches but think I'd be okay (careful expermentation is called for). It's a 9.5 foot RIB with a 2.5 hp 4 stroke stored off the boat when underway - total weight estimated at 120 lbs.

Here's a couple ways I handled dingys on my last boat. The C-Lifts are simply plastic C's that bolt onto your swim platform. With the Walker Bay I made my own hinges from Starboard.

This was the "system" I was thinking of. It looked easy and cheap.

I thought it might be.. but there are also much beefier and much more expensive swim platform SS hinge systems... maybe by Davis ? A friend of mine installed them on his Nordic Tug for his much heavier hard dingy.

A few boats ago, I had installed a pair of Edson Inflatable Holders to the swim platform, which were made from white powder-coated cast aluminum. They held the boat in all types of weather and made raising/deploying the dinghy very easy.

I'm getting fed up with the jack-ass(es) who hit me with bad reps points without leaving a name . . . coward!

"They're a piece of crap"

If you don't like what I have to say, then tell me to my face. Four bad rep points in a row, on different threads where I simply share my years of boat-owning experiences. That takes a very small person.
