RE: Another Dinghy Towing Question

you could try something like this:

Even when single handing, it really is not too much trouble to pull the dink in by myself.* As I only trail out 20 feet or so of line it only takes a few seconds to pull it up close to*the transom for docking or other close manuervering.

Also, it is just a few steps to the cockpit from the pilothouse on my boat

When the admiral is aboard, this is her chore.
