Re: Anyone have their davits set up for one person to use?

I singlehand a lot and use the dinghy from davits. I do one side at a time half the way then switch sides, not really inconvenient at all. Most of thr time I pullthe dinghy up even with the wife on board. Have Garhauer 11/4 tubes with 6x1 purchase. Cam cleats after the blocks so i can lovk on side easily beore pulling the other. Quite easy actually.
