Although the dorades have to come off (if you have them) and there's a slight overhang above the hatch, the 7' fits fine on the coach roof. I've done many off-shore miles this way. Clearance for the boom is no problem. Much better place than the foredeck in my opinion if you're anyplace where you can't take the chance of towing her. With mast winches, getting the dink aboard isn't too bad; I've managed it solo just fine. Takes about 10 minutes. Elise is a factory spec, factory finish Sam Morse FC though; I can't necessarily speak for all FCs.
