Carrying Dink On Roof.

What's everyone's thoughts on carrying a dink on the roof?It's 14'1" x 5'4" and roughly 105lbs without the OB.My boat will be 30' with an 8'4" beam and the roof will be about 7' above the water line.I don't think 105lbs will make that much difference in stability considering all of my tanks will be below the water line and most of my storage will be at or just above the water line.The dink will be strapped on chocks with a cover over it and the drain plug out.I can't install a full swim platform and davit system, because the upper I/O will be in the way.On most good days,the dink will be towed.
