The size of the mother ship always demanding compromises of us. I am on a 36 ft boat. It took some creativity, but I figured out how to get 2 dinks aboard. And both in very conventional ways. After all the head scratching I did to get there, I am still amazed at how simple it really was in the end for me. But finally getting a folding transom RIB made it all that easier

Mingst- what was it about the folding transom that mad it work?
