Re: Securing dinghy on davits

Way to go!

Using the topping lift, particularly while underway, is a pretty good idea. Assuming your boom isn't at risk of coming downing your head. Do you have a rigid vang?

I thought I would add that I slip an anti-chafe sleeve over the strap that wraps around the tube.

Unfortunately, if those ratchets aren't stainless steal, they will corrode quickly.
