I have a good size inflatable with an aluminium floor, originally I had it on the fore deck but hated it there .
My solution was to put it across the cabin top where it just fits after half deflating. I can get it up myself but it is a pain. I use a halyard but that needs another person so it doesn't help a solo sailor.

Hi
facing the same problems and not any satisfying solution jet.
I also found this :

but also this one doesn't solve the problems going astern to the kai, using the gangway it the dinghy is still upright.
For sure I will follow this thread Smile

I'm not sure why getting a dinghy onto the deck is more than a 1 person job, I do this by myself all the time. As mentioned, use a halyard. Lift the dinghy by the bow using its tow line (painter). When it clears the life lines, maneuver the dinghy onto the foredeck and then slowly ease the halyard down. Quite often I have to ease a little to get the stern of the dinghy onto the deck, close the rope clutch and go forward to position it better, and then return to the rope clutch to ease it down the rest of the way...  

Personally, I don't like the dinghy on the deck and the only time I put it there is when we are at our permanent moorage to get it out of the way (but then we're not on the boat). The rest of the time it's in the water. Monstrous contraptions of stainless steel on the stern to hold it are an eyesore. But that's just my opinion :)

Dinghies vary. Mine (a Highfield 2.6)has a substantial aluminium v shaped floor that adds a lot of weight. This allows far greater control in rowing and motoring with the little 2.3 Honda. I can certainly get it aboard but it is easier with two doing it. Not only does it tuck neatly between the two grab rails in front of the spray hood they also allow a very secure tiedown, seas shipping over the deck are no problem.
Obviously smaller inflatables give more storage options but if you rely on the tender it is not a great compromise.
There are not any really good options other than buying a 575 with tender garages etc.
If people choose to go with the davits then it is important to have the dinghy suspended high.

We are thinking of not having a dinghy, due to the storage problems.  We tow it on short journeys but pull it up onto the cabin roof on longer journeys, which does impede vision.
We have a 3-man inflatable kayak which is very easy to inflate, and store on our yacht, and we are going to try next summer with just using that.
I do like the look of the dinghy net, and may resort to that if we find we can't do without a dinghy - most davits just look too big for a 385.

I have mounted cam cleats on the side of the mast about 40 cm above the deck into which I can push the spinnaker halyards.  I use these when I have pulled the dinghy up in the same way as you mention so that I can secure the halyard whilst I move the dinghy in to its proper position.  The main reason the cleats are there is so that I can control lowering the spinnaker in its snuffing sock, so that I can neatly flake out the spinnaker sock in its bag ready for hoisting next time, rather than having somebody control it from the cockpit, as we normally only sail 2 up.

Why not use both, deck an stern?
I have the plan to craft my davits myself. However, I do not want to bend or weld the pipes. The construction should be removable. I think of 2 identical cranes at the stern. For advice and tips I would be grateful!

This is an old video, but it seems simpler and removable.
