Dinghy-Tow must be mounted on the center of the swim platform or stern. The dinghy can then be towed with the stern elevated and the bow in water with the outboard motor still mounted on the transom of the dinghy. Lowering and releasing the dinghy from this position can be done quickly and easily from the swim platform.
Lighter dinghies with plywood floors can usually be pivoted up into the storage position with the single line provided in the kit. For heavier rigid bottom dinghies, an optional 3:1 tackle is available from DAVRON MARINE PRODUCTS. If the outboard motor is tipped up and locked on the transom of the dinghy before the dinghy is pivoted up into the storage position, there is no need to remove the outboard motor.
