Something no one's mentioned

The dink. Sequitur, you've got the dink on davits and filled with snow. Watch that. If you put too much load on that you could end up bending your davits. For instance, if the drain is not entirely clear, when that snow melts you will end up with a dink full of water, which is more dense than snow. Then it may freeze, and nothing good will come from that.

It doesn't look like your dink is covered, and it also appears you have her canted to her port side, which means the water won't drain even if you have the drain plug out.

Just flagging the issue. If you've got it under control, my apologies for meddling.
