Hi Redouan, we have a fiberglass bottom Caribe dinghy powered by a 15 hp Yamaha 2 stroke , quite heavy and we love it. Planes well and is a very dry ride. We lift it on to the aft deck by the mizzen staysail halyard attached to the dinghy's bow using the main sheet electric winch to lift it. Haul it up to clear the side rails and then lower it on to the deck cross ways. We lash it tightly there. Short haul and coastal we have small davits. The outboard we lift with a line around the block at the end of the mizzen boom run to a small turning block and then to the mainsheet electric winch. Easy as.
