Personally, I think double braided dyneema (with polyester core) in this application is a mistake.
4mm Single braid (uncovered) dyneema has almost TWICE the strength as 4mm double braid (dyneema core with polyester cover). Further, with double-core, I am unable to reliably form an eye splice with a tucked cover. If I was concerned about chafe, I would rather have dyneema exposed than a polyester cover.
Also, I don't think you should rely on the lifting lines to hold your dinghy. I only use it to lift and then use ratchet straps to secure the dinghy.
