Here's my new dinghy guys! I'm excited about it! Used Weaver davits and I have 2 straps to secure it. I only keep it like this (as shown in the picture) when I'm at the dock, usually it's tilted all the way forward. My motor is a Torqueedo 1003.

I know that most folks love and swear by their inflatables but I didn't want to get one. I don't wanna be bothered by the potential air leaks (and water to a much less extent). I just wanted a simple, no frills composite boat. Get on it and go. Easy. Done. Fiberglass would've been great as well but I couldn't justify the weight. Just my thoughts. Not trying to bash anyone.

It fits perfectly back there BUT I may consider adding a small crane hoist on the bow and storing her on the foredeck. I'll see how this setup works over the next month or so and then make a decision. It's definitely easier to keep a dinghy on the swimgrid but I'm not sure if I like giving up all that valuable real estate. Prime real estate is scarce on a Camano! Lol
