Re: Anyone have their davits set up for one person to use?

It is an advantage to have the capabilty to have the lines seperated when lifting or lowering so you can put a slight angle to let any excess water go out the drain hole before placeing the plug in. The main thing here is the proper purchase. Ours is 6:1 so lifting 140 lbs is fairly easy.
