Towing i did that for 2 years in a row going down and back to Fla, Then i read the piece about the guy who was in rough seas, The dingy surfed down a wave behind the boat and fouled the prop that then fouled the rudder. taking waves side,Too caused items to start breaking and in the end the boat was lost. Then i said ok davits but have heard horror stories about big swells snapping the dingy off the davits with water weight ? so what when and where i guess it depends on how you use it and where you are going.
