Dingy davits

I'm looking for dingy davits for a catalina 380 and wonder what advise I may get. Do I have to spend $2000 to get a good set of davits for an RIB inflatable

Try Garhaurer. http://garhauermarine.com/catalog_process.cfm?cid=81
I don't have any experience with thier davits, but all of their gear is top drawer and a very good value.

Try Ocean Marinehttp://www.oceanmarinesystems.com/

I got a set for my CS36M and am very happy with them. Very good support from them too. I hang a 10'06" RIB with a 15hp Yamaha 2 stroke on them. Yes you do have to spend a bit for good davits and hardware.

Check out Edson's stern rack for inflateables. Bottom left of this page. http://www.edsonmarine.com/sailcatalog07/s00064.htm alternative for davits if your not wanting to haul the the inflatable all the time.

1970,

What a convenient nice post, thank you. Really is something I want, because it is removable and adds no weight once removed.

I had to get a removable dodger (my wife made me get it), so she's confortable when we cruise in summer. That is exactly what I needed because I can't get the dinghy in the cabin anymore (the dodger).

I just wonder if my rails accept the wieght of the dinghy, but will call the builder today.

Thank you.

We had those Edson dinghy davits on our last boat and would use them with our current boat, but they wouldn't work with the canoe stern.

TB, did they work ok?? were the rails strained or stressed??

PB, are you talking about towing the dinghy or a product called dingy tow??

The davits worked fine since they attached to a solid pipe rail. Lifting the dinghy up (and then outward to clear the davit arm) could be a challenge though, without the use of a fulcrum or bottom support.

Ironically, now we have a mizzen which is useful as a dinghy crane, but the canoe stern makes davit installation more difficult.

Do you still have them?? want ot sell??

I can have them modified to fit my rails, and so that the bottom float of the dinghy actually sits on my stern step.
