recycle is on a distinguished road
I cross from East Greenwich, RI to Newport and a couple times a year out to Nantucket and MVY. If I was to do a crossing, which I doubt I ever will I would have the dink stowed for sure. I spent 3 months in the Bering Sea and know what seas can do. Davits are great for coastal stuff. Il;ove having them

Recycle: this is an old thread. I'll post here and try a pm.

I have a Tartan 3800 and am looking for advice on installing davits. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Wilson--

You'd be much better off starting your own thread on installing davits, since that is NOT THE TOPIC of this thread. I'd also highly recommend you read the POST in my signature.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Tie downs

We use these 20' gunwale tie downs from West Marine:

INDIANA MARINE Tiedown at West Marine

They are heavy duty SS and have a nice set of hooks. Just throw the long end over the dingy, grab from undernieth with a boathook, clip on the other half, and tighten the ratchet. Very sucure if you use two. I don't sail with the outboard attached. Too heavy when heeled way over.

I sail a Hunter 44 DS with the Hunter davits and use these straps also. I supplement those with several criss cross lines from hard points on my 10'-6" AB with 15 hp engine to the davits themselves. A couple years back I added a SS strut from the davit to a hard point on the dinghy transom. All-in-all a very snug and rigid lash up. It takes about 15 minutes to hoist and about 3 minutes to launch. With the Hunter davits so high above the water I don't worry about being pooped, and I have no plans to cross the atlantic. the dinghy doesn't move, squeak, or swing at all.
