We have a similar sized Nautica with a 40 Hp Yamaha that does 30 kn. It was too heavy for davits
so we towed it coastal only. One thing to consider in the davit design is the weight of water
the dink could capture in a following sea offshore
. Or take measures to prevent, such as a cover. Like you we thought it would expand our coastal explorations. It did not. A little more time in a smaller one was more enjoyable. I do like the fuel
commonality with the Lagoon. Keeping that much petro around was a pain as well as dangerous.
