I had a local canvis shop make ours, using Sunbrella and hi-density foam to keep them thin (about 2") and stiff. To keep them from sliding around, we use rubberized carpet non-skid mats.

Handheld VHF

You might consider going with just a good handheld VHF. If you are primarly day sailing, and in protected waters, it's probably all you'll need. You can clip it to your PFD when you're solo, or stow...

Dingy lifting

The spin pole & end fitting are only designed for compression loads. The bridal keeps the pile ''in-column'' under compression loads.
