Not sure who that was in Annapolis... but a good fabricator known for their davits is Kato Marine. I think they'll do a custom arch too.

Doug Griffiths (sp?) of PSC 37 Kindred Spirit has a nice arch arrangement. Maybe he'll pop in here and show it off a bit (I have photos he sent me a while back). He's even got an off-set Sailomat windvane to go with it.

I've always liked CruisingDad's arrangement on his Catalina 400. The one change I'd want to make is to somehow incorporate the davits into the arch -- if it's possible to do so without having excessive rake. My absolute ideal would be to incorporate the stern rail/pulpit, arch, and davits all into one unit.
