Brent,

Makes sense to me. I replaced my lifelines with Amsteel last year. Time to add a pelican hook forward.

Thanks for pointing out the obvious. Not obvious to me!

Re: Getting Dinghy on Deck

We use the spin halyard and the anchor windlass, and keep the dink on deck any time we're going more than an hour from one anchorage to the next in calm water. Dragging the dink costs us the better part of a knot of speed. Connect the halyard to the dinghy bow, then hoist. Put the transom down near the mast, then ease the bow forward and down. Currently we have an inflatable but we dealt with it the same way with our Walker Bay 8.

Guess nobody ever told this guy that the Caribbean 1500 is likely to be a ride on port tack most of the way... In which case, he probably should should have mounted the bow facing the other way... If that sucker starts collecting water from squalls and whatnot, you'd want to have the transom with the drain plug open on the low side, seems to me... That thing could catch an awful lot of water, before it would start draining while sailing on port tack - and given the extreme height of that boom, doesn't look like it would take too much breeze to lay that thing over on her ear...

Hell, I'm surprised he doesn't have the engine up there, as well...

Or, perhaps I didn't notice, and he had it stowed at the freakin' masthead...

Have I mentioned that I hate tenders on davits, or gear stowed up high, in a seaway? (grin)

Jeez, some people will do anything to avoid having to move the stern light when they add davits.

I have an 8' Walker Bay and an 8' inflatable, and use the same method to lift and place them on the foredeck (not at the same time, of course!). The foam insulation Faster mentioned is great for protecting the dinghy and the hull and deck of my boat from scratches.
