Make things easy on yourself- the West Marine RIB, a set of Weaver Davits, and a pivoting engine mount so you don't have to remove the outboard when storing the dinghy on the swimstep. Understood that you don't desire to use davits, but it's good peace of mind when you know that the dinghy is secured and safe vice having to worry about the securing lines.

Or, get one of these:

Builders of First Class Boat Davits - Pioneers of Transom Davit Technology

Another option:

davits, davit, the greatest davit system for inflatable boats

Don't make the mistake of going too light/cheap and having to repurchase later.....
