This is an embarassing quesiton, but I have only had a 30ft boat (tow your dinghy) and worked on a 100ft yacht (use the crane to lift
the 22' dinghy).
Everyone else I know had 30' boats, and towed their dinghies.
This leads me to my question: I don't understsand how to rig my Avon inflatable
floor) up so it rides high enough with my davits
There are some feeble areas to clip to on the Avon
that came standard. These are metal loops attached to a rubber patch that appears to be glued to the Hypalon. I'm thinking this would rip off pretty quickly.
There are also a couple of small holes to the port and to the starboard side of the transom.
I have previously rigged a line between the two holes in the transom and tied to the same metal ring the dinghy's painter is tied to. This worked in a pinch, getting us 1200 nautical miles, but the dinghy
was just too low to the water
What is the best way to rig this up so the dinghy
rides as high as possible off the water
? It would seem I need to attache to something on the floor of the dinghy, but the floor is removable, and does not lend itself to holding weight.
