Re: Canoe stern dingy davits

I have them having off the stern, but let's admit, no dinghy looks good on the back of a sailboat. They're just practical.

Unless you install something that has a long arm, and therefore a lot of undesired leverage, fending is a part of raising and lower most dinks. Kato does make a set of boxed aluminum davits that look much nicer that SS pipe.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
