Have you thought about extending*the roof over the stern deck?** We have our stern deck canvas enclosed which makes another covered usable area. **Then you could also store the dink. **
There isn't headroom for a roof extension,*and a dink on the rear deck would block access to the saloon's stern door.* Also, the more stuff stored on the saloon roof, the less 360-degree visibility from the pilothouse.* All-around visibility from the pilothouse was one of the essential characteristics wanted for the boat.* Dink on the foredeck/forward-cabin roof would block forward visibility.* ...* *Uninflated dink at the rear of the saloon roof or inflated or hard dink on davits seem to be the only alternatives.
