Tilt-up dinghy lifting systems for sailboats
Why are most power boat davits/lifts the tilt-up kind, and most sailboat davits the lift-straight-up-and-hang kind?
Is it windage, weight, convenience, simplicity, tradition, heeling, or something else?
The reason I ask is that lifting a dinghy straight up adds 4-5 ft to your LOA for a marina slip.
