Re: Securing dinghy on davits

Not sure what you mean. The davits each sit in a bracket mounted lower on the transum, as low as I could go. But this design depends on tje rear rail. They are mounted outboard as far as practical and the pushpit is very strong there. When ratcheted in the weight is largely transfered to the center stantion because it pulls in on the davit arms. I plan to watch this point very carefully for any movement. If needed I can add some support brackets to beef up the pushpit.
