definitely bad on planning boats...

Freedom Lift also makes a stern lift system that mounts below the swim platform but can raise the tender above the chop. The real question is what that weight would do to the balance / stability of the boat since it is so far aft.

You have asked a good question. There are many things to consider when talking stowage for offshore jaunts. Think more than dinghy. Furniture, toolboxes, fly ridge weight and junk etc. all need a check box approach.

Be prudent and remember big waves don't follow forecasts. A prediction for 4 footers means some less and some more, much more.
