Standard Kato or Garhauer folding lawn chair davits will do. Won't look great.

Thank you. Im looking at kato I was hoping there was one i didnt have to fend off the stern while raising and had more eye appeal.

Re: Canoe stern dingy davits

I have them having off the stern, but let's admit, no dinghy looks good on the back of a sailboat. They're just practical.

Unless you install something that has a long arm, and therefore a lot of undesired leverage, fending is a part of raising and lower most dinks. Kato does make a set of boxed aluminum davits that look much nicer that SS pipe.

Re: Canoe stern dingy davits

The davits came with the boat and goes back 2 owners to the original in '99 so I have no idea who made them. The pictures are just for ideas. And yes, they are ugly and add 5' to LOA. I have a 43' slip and I use the whole thing between the sprit and davits/dingy.



Here's a shot of the thru-hull connection to the aft berth while I was making some mods -

Re: Canoe stern dingy davits

I don't think those davits are ugly. Well, no uglier than most anyway. I don't think the eye processes the davits as an aesthetic element.
