Re: What should I do about this swim platform?
I think any attempt to use the davits in rough conditions would end in the need for a new dink, in this case.
Messing with the platform will weaken it and make it more complex.
The only thing that makes sense to me is to extend the davit arms to keep the dink clear of the platform. It may also have the advantage of moving the dink, when up, far enough from the stern so as to make the swim platform more easily accessible.
I guess someone forgot rule # XX; measure twice, cut once.
