I’ve had this same issue with my Boston Whaler banging against the swimstep. Every time it hits, it wakes you up. The solution was 2 fiberglass mooring whips that bolted to the teak swimstep. Pull up, clip the eye hooks to the bow and stern cleats on the Dinghy, pull the dinghy close to the swimstep, just on the swimstep, let the dinghy go. The mooring whip lines adjusted properly, keep the dink off the swimstep. It’s really a great solution. The other solution is to tie the dinghy to the starboard or port side of the boat with fenders hanging to protect the boat. Adjust lines so you can still jump on the side of the swimstep.
