There are 2 blocks at the end of each davit one set for the dingy lift and another for the swim/boarding platform..Each set of lines is ran through the davits to staylocks. It takes two people ( adults for the dingy ) to raise or lower each one repectivly...I plan on electrifying the operation with a couple of DC winches mounted below deck in the lazoret making it a child's job.
