Porta bote

Anyone using a Porta bote as the dink and how do you secure it to the mothership??
Looks like some of the snap davit systems could work on the swim platform. Also saw a net affair that might work as well.
Seems some mfgs are mis informed about Porta botes they do NOT fold up if on their side so davit systems could work fine.
Just looking for real worl experiences
Thanks��

Correct, they don't fold up if on their side and the thwarts are in. We frequently tow ours, but only tucked up tight to the stern on a six inch painter. Don't need or have davits so can't comment on that.
