dinghy davit rigging

i have a 37 ft morgan out island. The boat already has an arch for solar panel and wind gen. i would like some davits for my new rib. wt is about 115 lbs, also have a 2 hp honda for a motor wt. 35 lbs. There is someone who makes arches and towers in my area and is going to look at the boat but asked me how i plan on setting up the rigging. can someone give recommendations. pics would be very helpful. I never lifted a dinghy on a davit before. not sure how the rigging should be set up. if it helps i will try to get some pics of the arch. thanks. jason

I have one line led from the top of two double sheeved blocks with snap shackles cliped to lift points on the dinghy.

Ignore the presence of the boarding ladder laying across the davits. From the end of the port davit you can see the upper of the two blocks. Ihave no problem manually lifting my Caribe RIB with this set-up on my MorganOI, although, I do raise the bow and stern of my dinghy with alternate pulls. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
