Re: DIY Dinghy Lift at Transom Location

I made a davit for hauling lobster traps using a 2-inch heavy walled aluminum pipe...just bent it to about 45 degrees using a pipe bender. Very strong, could pull the rail of the boat under without bending. I'm sure 175 lbs is not a problem. No signs of corrosion after 5 years.
