Hard dinghy stand off and tilt up method

I rigged weaver snap davits to the swim step and Fatty and I am quite happy with the results. So far I have run a line tied to the swim step under the fatty and pulled her up and then tied the line to a clean on the stern however I want a more permanent solution.

I put two 6" pieces of foam water pipe insulation on the stern swim ladder to the sun deck for the fatty to rest against.

Walking around Westmarine I found a metal loop with a flat base that I am thinking about mounting to the outside rail of the Fatty so that I could clip a line to it and pull her up.

Anything wrong with my thinking? Is there a better way?

Not a great picture but it is all I have of the install.
