RE: Proper stowage of dingy outboard?

Marin,
Thank you for posting that link. I thought I had seen most all of the options for dinghy engine storage but had never seen that mount before. I like it a LOT. I have been pondering the hassle of taking off the motor which I'd really prefer not to do.
I assume you are using that motor mount with weaver snap davits? Are you just manually lifting up your dinghy and motor or using a pulley off the boom? Right now I can easily tilt our 9' rib up on the weaver snap davits and tie off on a cleat @ the transom but it would weigh more with our 6-7hp outboard.
