When we cruised w/ our 32 we had for a year a hard dinghy carried aft of the mast (no dodger) and a 12' Achilles. I just bought another for this boat. The 12' Achilles collapsed into two sections. Much easier to move around. I carried both sections on the stbd upper berth. I had a 10 hp Evenrude (bought in the islands) that I could take the handle off and stow IN the aft lazzerette. I cut out an opening in the floor and added some cleat stock to it and made a cover. When in port and the dinghy was out I put the cover on and that held much of our deck stuff. When we went offshore and for extended periods I put the engine in the locker. All I had to remove was one bolt for the handle. The the handle laid on it's side. I build a 2 x 6 x 12 bracked that I permanently attached to the bulkhead in there so the engine was firmly attached to the boat. I loved it. The engine was low, the deck, clean, and all my gear was stored.
