Re: What should I do about this swim platform?
I hate to say it, because I like the idea of having a swim platform and have the same boat, but you've made my mind up. Skip the swim platform if you want dinghy davits. It's also in the way of self steering gear. I probably won't have davits or the swim platform. You can't make the boat be everything to everyone. I did, however, spend a solid half hour zooming in on your setup. Interesting.
EDIT: You LIKE this Bill? I'm suffering myself. Brought the rudder home for major surgery and spent 2 hours last night grinding off 40 years of bottom paint and prepping to cut and re-foam. That's AFTER we got back at 2AM from the Virgin Islands and worked all day at real jobs. All the portlights are out and I have to redo some of the paneling around them that had some minor rot. And on. And on. And on. Thanks for the video on the centerboard thing last night. That and the sheave show have been helpful. I've done this all before, several times with different boats, and very little concerns me, but very helpful seeing someone else 4 steps ahead of me on a boat I am somewhat unfamiliar with. Making me look closer before launching.
