Re: Dinghy Davit, Arch or not worth it?

I've been moved a few times in the last six years to look at davits. We do a lot of offshore passagemaking so the dinghy spends most of its life on the foredeck.

We finally hit on the solution that works for us. We're putting an Anderson electric winch on the mast - it makes hoisting the dinghy, the main, and the spinnaker trivial evolutions.

sail fast and eat well, dave
