Now I am trying to figure out how to store it onboard my 36. It is a Walker Bay 8. Right now I am leaning toward on top of the aft cabin, but need a frame for it to rest in. What has everyone else done? Any suggestions?

I thought about storing a dinghy on the wheelhouse roof after seeing a couple of pix with the same. However, then I read that stowing whilst at the dock is a whole lot easier than recovery while in anything more than 1ft seas on the hook, without a crane or hoist, and is likely to cause serious conniptions. Launching safely from great heights is another issue entirely

Davits on the stern or a rack on the swimstep makes more practical sense to me.
