Relocating the Crossbar on the Davits

I need to move the 90° tees that hold the crossbar on the ends of my davits inboard to accommodate my new Hydrovane. I.E., the crossbar is in exactly the wrong spot. If I move it inboard, it needs to be relocated inside a closed box arrangement, where there is no way to slide a rail tee in without cutting into the box.
I need a hinged rail tee like Sea Dog’s 290904. However, they only make up to 1” and the davits I have are 1 ¼”.
Does anyone know of a source for what I want or have a suggestion on how to reattach the rail across the width of the stern?

I believe this is a case where a couple of pictures would help us.

Re: Relocating the Crossbar on the Davits

Sailrite has an 1 1/4" hinged jaw slide, but it would mean you would have to use eye ends on the cross bar. Garhauer in California might be able to help you out. What about putting a radius on the cross bar with diagonal braces to add ridgitiy. Only a suggestion without seeing the situation.

Re: Relocating the Crossbar on the Davits

I want to move the bar from the tee it is currently in to the blocked in section inboard. I don't want to cut the bar and slide on a tee, I want a hinged tee that will clamp around the bar then allow the crossbar to be reinstalled.

The forum software wouldn't let me attach these as .jpg's for some weird reason.

Went with this solution. Only have to reduce the crossbar length to accommodate the additional length of the hinged bracket plus the end cap and I'm back in business.
