Great experiment! Sailorboy can tell us if a wave comes by and sweeps the dinghy off the davits, or if the davits go with the dinghy and take chunks out of the transom when they leave. Mike (above) has a better idea. The Gulf Stream
is not a place to run experiments. It can get quite nasty, even in Summer. Hurricane
season is likely worse:Coast Guard searches for the 700' containership El Faro ended last week. Carrying extra weight and windage aft on a 36' boat will impair handling that will already be sluggish from the stores and gear
needed for a long trip.
