Jean and Ron....here's my biased opinion. We have a Brooks Cargo Mast
and stow the dink on the upper deck.....I call it the boat deck as a
result. I don't think it is difficult at all to launch and retrieve.
However, we don't have a pet that has to be taken ashore periodically
(and we won't have a pet).
The drawbacks to stowing on the transom are many, but I can only
remember a couple: as someone said, a big wave catching the thing
could do some damage; looks ugly; hides your boat name; restricts
visibility astern; complicates getting on/off your boat in the marine.

We have just purchased 37-118. The F/B 37 and really love it.
We have been trying to determine the best position for our inflatable
Swim platform mount on davits or salon mount with manual crane?
We plan to do extended cruises and need ease of handling and also ease
berthing stern in and boarding via the swim platform and visibility aft
cockpit and helm position.
If salon mount then visibility looking aft from the helm position is
unless the boat is chocked way up. But mounted up top it is out of the
harder to launch but berthing/boarding is easy.
Looking for some experienced owners to give us their opinion?
