There are 2 blocks at the end of each davit one set for the dingy lift and another for the swim/boarding platform..Each set of lines is ran through the davits to staylocks. It takes two people ( adults for the dingy ) to raise or lower each one repectivly...I plan on electrifying the operation with a couple of DC winches mounted below deck in the lazoret making it a child's job.

Interesting...I used to have an Irwin44 with the internal drop down transom and it was controlled by a single electric winch running two cable pulleys. That way, the cables went up and down together with one switch. Just a thought for the future for ya!

Yes Cam...Thats the system I meant exactly...The reason for the two winches is one for each operation..ie..Dingy lift or swim platform..one button for each. ..House bank is under aft cabin bunk, easy close connection.
