Re: Davits on a PSC 34

On our PSC 34 we keep our 8' inflatable rolled up between the inner forestay and the forward hatch. I pump it up on deck and use the spinnaker halyard to put it in and out of the water. It's a pain but towing a dinghy in 15-25kts is more painful.

Just last week I got lazy and towed it out of an anchorage but by the time we were out of the harbor I changed my mind and stowed it ( in dead calm conditions). Wifey looked at me funny. But by the end of the day we were running downwind in 20-25kts in 4-5 feet steep seas. Wifey thought I was a genius. I just thought we were lucky.

The canoe stern limits the real estate. We plan to add a Monitor before the end of the year so I am interested in you ultimate solution.
