Here's how I solved my similar conundrum on my 34. It's a 3.3m/10'11" PVC soft bottom dink that's rated for max 15HP. I run it with a 15HP 2-stroke Merc and it's very stable and can reach speeds up to 20 mph. 10-15 is a comfortable cruising speed for this setup. The Garhauer lifting davit works great for lifting the motor and dink.

Since then, I have added a dinghy float referenced and pictured here.

My boat is my ark. It's my mobile treehouse and my floating fishing cabin. It's my retreat and my respite. Everyday I thank God I have a boat! -Al
