Sadly, our marina doesn't allow dinghies to be kept in the water or on a rack attached to the dock.
When it comes to davits, I have to agree with everyone else. They would look a bit silly.
One of our sailing buddies has a system where the dinghy stern is attached to his stern; then the bow is raised parallel with the transom. It seems to work when Tom is docked, but would look silly when he is underway. Underway, it may even be risky.
We store our 9 footer on the foredeck. That is a bit of a pain, but the dinghy racks at our marina are nothing to write home about.

It's not my fault they named a movie after our boat
