Achilles HB-315LX with Yamaha 15 on Garhauer 1.25"  diameter extra tall davits.  Love it.  I sail with the engine still on the dink.

Now that is an ARCH! Love it. *****
Integrated pushpit gets a bonus point.

and your dodger and bimini look great too.

Very nice!

We went with an Atlantic tower with built-in davits and absolutely love it. Holds the dinghy very securely and high out of the water and is very easy to raise and lower using Garhauer blocks. It supports our solar as well and is rock solid. We are considering another boat and this would be the very first thing we add to it.

Nice set up! I am considering going with an Atlantic Tower as well on our 2001 C34 MkII. Any special spec/option you'd advise needed for this? Thanks!

Does anyone have pictures or video or other details on how to raise the dink on the deck? 9’1” aluminum bottom RIB with 9.9hp Yamaha. I’m worried the engine is a bit heavy for the stern rail.

Sky,
I don’t have a video or pictures in action but I described how I hoist my dinghy on deck in Reply 20 of this discussion. But, do I understand you are thinking of stowing the dinghy on deck with the engine still attached?  I don’t think that would work. The dinghy would have to be lifted level and sit upright on deck in chocks you would have to build that would be quite high. I agree that a 9.9 4 stroke engine seems heavy for the rail. I have a 4hp Yamaha that I lift by hand onto the rail but it is far lighter than a 9.9. I’m certain others have done it though. I have friends who stole heavy 4 stroke engines on their rail on a Beneteau and a CS.  Use the search bar and see what you can find. Or start a new post asking about heavy outboard stowage options.
