To pull my dinghy up and stow on the foredeck is a real PITA but if I knew I was heading into something as rough as the river was, I'd suck it up and do it.
And you are leaving the motor the dink. Right?

Nope. My motors stay attached to my body. I made the trip yesterday and as expected it was very calm. I only sailed for about an hour and the wind went flat. I did bring my oars out of the dinghy before I left, just in case.

I like the way the motor makes the stern squat and throw out the big wake when towing the dink! It's pretty!
