If your davits have a hefty stainless steel cross bar like my Kato davits, I see no reason why you cannot have someone weld rings for the lifting harness anywhere on the bar so the dink can be lifted easily regardless of the distance between the arms.

twisty2 I saw this a couple weeks ago and I remember thinking at the time why not strip it and part it out like you would a car. Wouldn't the salvager have a better chance of unloading it that way??

It's all a matter of personal tastes, but I happen to think an arch looks pretty good on boats like yours.

Unfortunately, according to the salvager's website, you'd have to purchase the entire hulk just to get the arch!

P.S. Actually Daniel, if you got to Tim's link, there looks to be a pretty nice radar/bimini/davit arch still in good shape.
Yeah, that's actually our boat. Had a tough weekend. Just kidding of course. Actually, it's an awfully sad looking story, and I shouldn't joke. There but for the grace of Neptune go I!

On the radar arch, I have to say, it's slightly tempting. Not sure if I mentioned this, but our davits are in the midst of the install, and it's proving to be a bit of a PITA. Not the install per se, but the davits are very far apart due to the transom confirguration, so hoisting the dink in a way that's reasonable and stable is going to be a little challenging. I'll know much more in about a month or so after the install is complete, the boat is splashed, and we tinker with the setup. But if it doesn't work well, I'm going to start to wonder if we should have gone with the arch option, notwithstanding the aesthetics.

UrbanChicago "shaken, not stirred"

Is that really the name of the boat, or did someone come by and paint that on the hull afterwards?

sailingdog The owner's gonna have to pony up for removing the wreckage from the beach more likely than not. I hope his insurance was paid up.

Faster OUCH!!!

Hard to imagine that much damage just by dragging it up a beach... I think the bulldozer must have driven over it. Sad end to an expensive boat.

night0wl I think theres a bit of a stain in my underpants after seeing that carnage....
