I carry a 10' Portabote on the railings forward and a nesting dinghy (5' 6" x 5') inverted over the foredeck hatch.

I used to have a Zodiac 10' 2" RIB on davits but went off that when a davit snapped underway.

Kind of a personal question.

But if you must know, I tow it behind the boat most of the time. Some times on long trips it is tied up to the back rail with three lines, one from the bow and one each from the sides, with just the back of the dinghy in the water.

I had posted this in the "Towing a dinghy" thread in Seamanship but it seems more appropriate here.

Quote:
I didn't see the need to start a new thread so i'm just tacking my question onto this one.

I'm thinking that we would tow behind most of the time but during heavier weather we could just deflate and lash it in front of the mast... if not stowing it down below.


Our boat is 27'... would keeping an 8 foot inflatable inflated on the deck be too much and in the way of running rigging? What about the genoa and chafe? I know there is physically enough room on our boat but i feel like it would make things too tight up there. What is your experience?
Any thoughts?

I put my 8'8" inflatable on the foredeck to see if i liked it. It took up the whole deck from the mast to the samson posts (about 1' back from the end of the deck). There was no room to work my anchor gear, which i really didn't like. If I didn't have the bowsprit the whole works would be covered in dingy.

yeah... this is what i was thinking. Maybe just rolling it up deflated and lashing it behind the mast would be better. I considered a 7 footer too... small but plenty for our needs and would be easier to deal with.

Depending on what kind of transom you have, I have seen a set up where a few screw eyes and some line allows you to carry the dingy, up against the transon. It also allows you to launch and recover the dingy very easy.

I'll see if I can find a web page on it.

Thanks Free... i don't think that will work for us because we have a transom mounted rudder. I did give that some thought.
