About Dinghy-Tow
The History - From the early days of boating when tenders consisted of small rigid dinghies, to today, where inflatables have become commonplace, there have always been the accompanying problems of towing, storing and motor removal. Dinghy-Tow is being presented to the boating community as a unique answer to all of these problems.

During four years of research and development in canals, rivers, intercoastal waterways, the Great Lakes and the adjacent ocean waters of North America, Dinghy-Tow evolved from a unique concept to a product that meets and exceeds the demands of the marine environment.
Towing - The concept is simple - tow your dinghy backwards. Dinghy-Tow lifts the stern of the dinghy out of the water using two stainless steel poles and lifting tackle. Towing in this manner leaves only a small part of the bow in the water resulting in low drag, low windage and an unobstructed view. Dinghy-Tow can easily be adjusted to the heeling action of a sailboat in varying sea conditions. The pivoting action of the mechanism allows the dinghy to move with the waves absorbing vertical and lateral motion. While standing in the cockpit, the dinghy, with motor already in place, can quickly be lowered and released.

Towing in congested areas is no longer a problem. The dinghy is always maintained in the same relative position to the stern of the sailboat, eliminating the problem of loose tow lines caught in propellers and uncontrolled dinghies.
Storage - The dinghy may be stored in the towing position with the bow in the water. A more permanent storage position is achieved by pivoting the bow of the dinghy up against the backstay of the sailboat, with the motor remaining on the dinghy. This position is ideal for docking at marinas where space is at a premium.

Motor Removal - With the dinghy in the permanent storage position, the outboard motor is adjacent to the stern rail and is readily accessible for removal.

Let sailing deliver the enjoyment it promises with the addition of Dinghy-Tow to your sailboat.
