Just a comment, as we are discussing this, I am strongly of the belief that you should never make any kind of crossing with the tender on davits. It is a accident waiting to happen.

I believe the tender should go on the deck upside down, lashed securely - or stowed down below and deflated where appropriate. I have heard many stories of people having their davits and or tenders ripped off in a storm when pooped.

My opinions.
