this one too (might be the same boat) - dinghy is in the water but I think that is a mounted davits

Why not just haul it up onto the netting. Also a soft bottom dink can be folded up complete and not take a lot of space. Get a 2.6HP outboard you can lift with one hand and slap it on amount in the pushpit.

Or a torquedo! 3 pieces each 15lbs - can just stow it in an ama

How does it do in a cross-wind when a T-storm comes through packing 60mph + gusts?

Yes, inverted on the tramps. IF I'm confident of settled weather and we're just harbor-hopping I might not bother inverting it. I do pull the drain plug and tie it, however. We hoist it with the spinnaker halyard, the OB motor is stowed on the aft rail. Dragonfly 1200.
