A manual boat crane from Atkins & Hoyle...

Has anyone used a manual boat crane, say the 1900 model from Atkins & Hoyle? Appears a good way to load a dinghy, and then remove the crane from its base, and you're off sailing. Thx in advance.

Exactly like that. It seems this is a good way to go for a boat that has the space to mount one of these small manual cranes.

Here's the one we chose and after using it for a couple of years, it was worth every penny. The Trawler Beach House: Our New Outboard Lift and Back Saver . Chuck
