pivoting davit system anyone use it?
« on: April 28, 2006, 08:48:05 AM »

Hi. I've been looking at the pivoting davit system sold at it consists of 2 large "c" looking hooks that your dinghy hooks into and you roll it up. It's made for power boats with swim platforms primarily because ideally it needs a 30" spread for best support. Anyone use it on our small platform? I have a 1990 with walk thru transom.

Any better ideas for hauling our dinghy other than regular davits, putting it on the bow, or trailing it behind?

thanks, Kerk

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for, but here's a link for a previous discussion about Weaver Davits. They bolt to the transom, then there are loops that fasten to the dinghy and the dinghy clips to them. Once attached the dignhy swings up and lays across the transom. You can also search under "dinghy davits".
