I have a PSC 27 Orion and have dinghy davits but no dinghy yet. I guess you could get davits for the 34. Mine fold in toward the stern when not used. I also have a Givens 6 person offshore liferaft in the soft bag. It can fit in the starboard cockpit locker but I don't think I would like to try and lift it out in an emergency since it weighs about 70lbs. There is space between my mast and dodger to strap it down.
I saw another 27' Orion that came back from a 2+ year cruise to South America / Chile, so it can be done in a 34 I am sure. He attached solar panels to his lifeline posts ( I think with SS rod reinforcement) and had a system where he could raise them up parallel to the water when needed, or stored vertically hanging outside the lifeline area.
