Re: Securing dinghy on davits

Gene I saw the braces on your rear rails. My concern was the forces seem to be in three pinpoint place ( 2 on the rear rails and one where the davit goes in the removable shoe) as opposed to being spread out low or wide with a backing plate buried behind your stern somewhere. This would even be more accentuated oif it swings even a small amount so its good you are racheting these down. So where are the pressure points of the ratchets...the rear rails again? What point takes the load?
