Dingy on a davit also makes for great place to stow trash hahahaAll good points except the statement that davits are ugly and expensive.
I guess solar panels, and wind generators are ugly also😃Most boats with davits when underway have the dinghy pulled up. no more unesthetic than either pulling a dinghy with engine or having it on the foredeck. There are some good davits that can be pulled out when not using. as far as expense, we installed our Garhauer davits ourselves and the cost. At the time they were $1100, now $1600.because of them we use our dinghy more, handle it easily, and can store it with a cover thus preserving its life. They also serve as a perfect place for a solar panel.
