The biggest need is for the tow to be self bailing.

After that, eliminate or reduce tow line chafe to a minimum and have fun.

The next biggest threat beyond losing the dink is fouling the tow line in the trawlers prop(s)....and that barring so emergencies is just basic seamanship.

But definitely, a tow that far should be able to shed water well.
