RE: securing the dinghy

Steve,
We tow the dink, but like Marin snap it to Weaver Snap Davits when we arrive at the ship. Another benefit is that getting out onto the swimdeck and up the ladder is lots easier with it snapped into place. It CAN be a little noisy if the winds kick up and you are trying to sleep.
BTW, how is your Davit changes coming you showed me at the Trawler Do? Did the cross piece give you the strength you were hoping for?
