Re: Securing dinghy on davits

When I was thinking about these davits I saw them on a Beneteau at Catalina Island. He had a larger RIB with a 20hp 4stroke and had been using it for 6 years, sold me. They are rated at 175 per arm but are easily removable. The owner mentioned using the topping lift to help support the load. I though it was a great idea and as I don't use the topping lift anyway why not. This shot shows it connected to the bridal, it pulls the dinghy in and shares the load.
