Re: Hard Dinghy Storage Aboard

Boy, I like the look of those. I was avoiding going through the deck, but the naval architect in me is starting to get some big ideas.

I can have some threaded deck sockets (baxter bolts) installed such that when I want the chocks there I can screw them in, and when not, just screw the flush deck plugs into the sockets.

Sorry for the delay, been fighting battery issues on the boat.

First shot from the bow, shows all three mounting blocks:




From starboard, closeup of the bow block:




From starboard next to mast pulpit, this the the right rear block:



I plan to remove these at some point and you could have them but they are way down the list of things to do.

I didn't. South Maryland.

I am definitely interested in seeing what they look like.

We just did our inaugural weekend cruise with the new dinghy, and would like to get it out of the water on the longer runs; we were on the Chesapeake in 20-25 from the S, and it was getting yanked around pretty good. Not worried about it so much as the painter chafing or parting.

It's what the Ashley Book of Knots calls them, probably just what everyone else calls lashings, but there was a specific way that the turns were secured.

The 37 I just bought has 3 teak blocks on the foredeck/cabin top shaped to hold a hard dinghy. I'll try to take a photo of them this weekend and upload them here.

Re: Hard Dinghy Storage Aboard

I'm a traditionalist, so no velcro. I use french lashings to secure my (dyneema) lifelines to the stanchion terminations, they tension up well and don't loosen up at all. I might consult Ashely and see what he has to say.

Those are more semi-permanent, and might take a little more time on the dinghy. That said, I really only stow the dinghy aboard when going offshore. If I'm daysailing and anchoring every night, I just tow it.
