I have a mate up in Mackay who has a Angel 50 aft cabin and he carries his dinghy on top with a powered crane and has no problems.
Now this guy is a Master Class 1 unlimited so is no D**k head. Being a rigid inflatable he has no trouble in throwing it off in an emergency.

My own dinghy is a 3.7 mt tinny and is in chocks and I could still slip it straight off the back or over the side into the water manually if it was an emergency (I wouldn't be worried about damaging Tidahapah or the dinghy in this case)

Mind you if you are not a fishernman then it doesn't matter, stick it on the back as long as it doesn't block your stern view for looking out the back when traveling especially at night.
