I donít have any specific photos of the dinghy mounting but the two attached below let you see how itís mounted on the boat. If you zoom in youíll see at my left shoulder the line for lowering and pulling the dinghy up. Also a short line for holding it in place when up that is clipped onto the pad eye on the dinghy tube, around the safety line and then back to the dinghy pad eye. Before anyone suggests that this puts a high load on the safety line, this is not the case as the entire weight of the dinghy is carried on the two lines attached to the pad eyes on the transom. The load on the safety line is less than hanging a fender on it.

I will be doing my annual maintenance on the dinghy next week so if itís useful I could take some photos of the dinghy pad eye locations and the lines used. Iíll also take a photo of the boatís transom to show the positioning of the pad eyes on it. 
Itís an incredibly easy system to use, simple and very reliable. As mentioned earlier the only slight downside is that the outboard canít be left on the dinghy, hence the 2hp Yam in the photo. Itís about the lightest outboard out there and more than capable of moving 4 fat blokes in a dinghy.

Hope this is useful
