davit suggestions

I hate the way a davit looks but we really don't have a better option. Do the sling davits work or should I avoid them?

Its a love hate relationship with mine, nothing to do with the builder, just the way they look and the hassle, but sure nice to have it off the fore-deck.

If you do go with them, check out Garhauer's

Cheers,

More information would be useful. What are you planning to use the davits for? What kind of boat are you planning to put the davits on. Some boats, regardless of what kind of davits you use, will look really odd with them. Others, with proper care in selecting the davits, can have them look fairly good.

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.

So what's the problem, your beam is wide enough to handle a 15' RIB but I recommend using a custom set-up instead of pre-made ones that need to be modified any way to make it look decent.
Sketch it out and go for it.

Ocean marine davits. Ocean Marine Systems - Davits, Rails, Lifts, and Platforms.

I have a set on my CS36M and carry a 10'06" RIB and a 15 hp Yamaha 2 stroke, works really well.

Garhauer....they will modify to your specs. They have 6:1 purchase and large backing plates. They also make a great Radar pol with detaching motor lift which can be stored easily.

I figure I will eventually add davits, but I really don't want to. Kato seems to make the most robust and nicest looking IMO.

Kato makes really nice stuff, in fact the owner designed the spars for my Tartan way back when...but be prepared to pay! I was quoted over $800 just for a engine lift...my wallet isn't that deep

Cheers,

Kato makes two very different models. One looks like folding lawn chair furniture and does not look great. The other looks much more substantive with boxed aluminum and looks very good.
