Re: Securing dinghy on davits

We have our dinghy rigged so that when raised it isn't level. Our drain plug is on the starboard side of the transom so we have the starboard side lower by about 6". The bow comes up tight against the bottom of the davit and is snugged down and we have a line at the transom that goes under one tube (inflatable) and then is secured with a truckers hitch to the center of our stern pulpit (pulls toward the bow). The dink doesn't move at all. Sorry no pics.
