I sail a Hunter 44 DS with the Hunter davits and use these straps also. I supplement those with several criss cross lines from hard points on my 10'-6" AB with 15 hp engine to the davits themselves. A couple years back I added a SS strut from the davit to a hard point on the dinghy transom. All-in-all a very snug and rigid lash up. It takes about 15 minutes to hoist and about 3 minutes to launch. With the Hunter davits so high above the water I don't worry about being pooped, and I have no plans to cross the atlantic. the dinghy doesn't move, squeak, or swing at all.
