Your dinghy, inflatable, rubber ducky, tender, dink or whatever else you may call it, is at best, even in calm conditions, a very unstable platform. Picture having loaded into your dinghy two weeks provisions with relative ease from the dock, then chugging out to your vessel in a seaway of varying motion depending on the weather conditions at the time.
You have to stand up, wobbling and with one hand hold on to the coaming to keep the dinghy in close to the hull. Ideally, you will have someone with you in the dinghy and another crew on deck to receive the goods. The crew squatting in the thwarts passes bags to you, then with your free hand, pass them upwards to the crew on deck.
