Anyone with Garhauer Dinghy Davits Near Annapolis ?

I have read nothing but good things about GARHAUER dinghy davits. The problem is that I would like to see a set in person before ordering and I don't want to wait for the next boat show. Is there anyone near Annapolis MD that has a set on their boat that I could take a look at? Thanks.

I have Garhauer davits, but the boat is in Long Island Sound. They are well made, and the hardware is all sized appropriately for the davits. I bought from price point, but I think they are as well made as any other stock davits. The only fix I have to do, is to drill and tap the cross bar, where it goes into the "T" fitting on the outboard end of the davit. There is just a set screw, and it has come loose and the davits spread apart.

If I was ordering davits from Garhauer again, I would have them put another "T" fitting,like the one on the outboard end, somewhere closer to the boat, so I could put another cross bar in, and use it to mount a couple of solar panels. They are off the boat now, the cover is on, but I am going to check the boat this weekend, so if you would like any pics, I could take them. They would just be laying on the cabin sole.

Can't help you with a viewing. I'm a long way from there but can say I love my Garhaur. I use it for hoisting my outboard. It was a great price and it works really well!
