Well, yes, cranes and davits
and all that is available for a price
, but my mistake was bying a heavy dink..
If I WANTED a heavy dink, I would install all kinds of lifting devices and cranes to get the porker up and down, but now I am kind of stuck with the heavy thing and not wanting to spend a dime more on cranes or davits.
Tomorrow we will try to towing method..Have not used the boat or the dink for 6 months, but leaving the dock
tomorrow and will tow the thing down and up the River and to Biscayne Bay and back...Just to taste it..Never towed my old dink for more than a few miles at the time as it was so easy to flip up on the foredeck and back down when the anchor
Now I will test the tug-boat endorsment on my Coast Guard ticket and I just may have to live with the rubber-ducky behind me forever...
