securing the dinghy

I mounted two small cleats on my stern caprail for that purpose. One of them is next to the boarding steps and we use that as a handhold as well....I never like pulling on a stantion or railing if I don't have to.
I also use these cleats to secure the dinghy gas tank, spare gas can, etc. while underway.
I also tie extra lines from the dinghy to those cleats once the dink is in the davits...sort of an anti-sway line when underway.
