Dinghies and storms

With the approach of Fay we have safely tucked ourselves into a protected sound and deployed our anchor and bridle with plenty of room to swing in deep water.

Our dingy is tied aside secure with bow and stern lines and fenders.

Should we bring the dingy aboard and secure it to the deck cradle or just let it ride with a third line tied for safety?

I would always put it on board. Then it won't be jerked putting stress on the lines. Plus you can take the bung out and keep the water out of it.

Another vote for: Bring it up to the boat deck and secure it.
