Thanks HH,

HERE's the Greenline:

Hard to steal, always ready for instant use and , no need for a wing engine as a get home.
A hydraulic lifting swim platform is the answer: I believe they cost $$$$. ($40k?)

You can float your dinghy onto the platform, then raise it.

Fathom Yachts, built in the Northwest, have a fold down transom. I took one for a test drive and liked the idea of the fold down transom a lot.

I'm not sure what the status is of this company. I believe they stopped building due to lack of sales and may be in the process of being sold to a Canadian company?

I like the fold down transom idea until my transom ends up in my salon from rough seas.

Getting 'pooped' can't be much fun, folding transom or not!
