Re: Hoisting an inflatable dinghy
Better to have the lifting eyes break off, I suppose. (G)
A proper engineer would plan ahead for that, and ensure there's some type of breakable link, so that the dink WILL be torn free before the davits are ripped out of the hull. Sacrificial eye-rings on the lift lines?
