We tow the dinghy on a single line a boat length or so back, trying to keep it on the front side of the first wave back. I'll leave the outboard on in calm weather and for short tows otherwise the engine goes on a pushpit bracket.

After a failure of polypropylene tow line due to UV degradation we switched to New England Ropes dinghy tow line. It floats but the double braid cover is more UV resistant. Splicing it is a real job due to the friction between core and cover. West Marine carries it pre-cut and spliced.
