Re: Securing dinghy on davits

Gene,

Good it is that secure.

The removable davits I have seen in the past slid into a "shoe" which was a plate mounted on the deck or sugar scoop transom. It looked like a suspect installation.
It has made me skeptical about the long term strength of the connection under any stress. You are confident yours are secure and the stress is spread out enough.

Let us know how this works out in the long run. I noticed you are in Long Beach area where the wind really blows and mostly off shore sailing. Great place to sail. We chartered a boa there last year and visited Catalina and Channel islands. Also got to sail on Stars and Stripes in San Diego
