The concept is simple: Tow your dinghy backwards. Dinghy-Tow achieves this by allowing you to lift the stern of the dinghy out of the water. Dinghy-Tow has two stainless steel poles attached to the stern of the main vessel which connect to the transom of the dinghy with snap-on, quick-release fasteners. The accompanying tackle attached to the stern rail and to the outer end of the poles allows someone standing in the cockpit to easily lift the stern of the dinghy out of the water. By towing a dinghy in this manner, you can lift the dinghy at it's strongest point, the transom, where the motor, and consequently most of the weight, is located. This leaves only a small portion of the bow in the water, resulting in low drag.
Dinghy-Tow also solves the problem of storage. With the stern of the dinghy fastened to Dinghy-Tow, the outer ends of the poles become pivot points. The bow line of the dinghy can be pulled in, pivoting the dinghy into a storage position against the stern rail. Pulling in the tackle can further lift the dinghy into a higher and more secure position against the backstay. In this position, the interior of the dinghy and the outboard motor are protected from the elements.
Another feature of Dinghy-Tow is the manner in which the outboard motor can be removed from the dinghy. With the dinghy in the final storage position, the outboard motor is adjacent to the stern rail and is readily accessible for removal.
