To be honest P I don't find it that stressful.
You have the choice of either towing with the limited hassell and stress it incurs,or have the "stress" of finding Dry Stack..Mooring..or Boat Yard fees every month
Not to mention the inevitable extra maintainance required for a Boat kept beside or on the water like regular anti fouling cleaning,sun damage ect.and the security implications,coupled of course with limited choice of Cruiseing grounds..or at least jump off point.
To me the bennifits of being able to tow/launch anywhere,with the massive choice of cruising grounds it opens up...any hassell IS well worth the effort!
As to design options...maybe if it works it doesn't need fixing?...although most of tweak our rigs to suit,and I'm always open to new ideas!
