F35 (p) transom dinghy system

Anyone try a Weaver transom hard dinghy mount system with a sugar scoop F35 - Pedrick?

On closer look with the Weaver system - the dink maybe too low and while heeled may cause the dink to drag port or starboard on heeling....

I use a dinghy tow on my Pedrick 35. It tows the dinghy backwards, raises the stern and only the bow in the water. The towing is great. When day sailing, the dinghy is always ready to go. Pull two lines out of the cam cleats, drop dinghy in the water, undo two hooks and you are ready to go. The only drawback is hearing the noise of the water around the bow of the dink about 6 feet behind the boat.

Where did you purchase the dinghy tow product?
I am also on the Northshore.
