Re: Dinghy Engine Lift Tote

Ya, the Davis harness seem like a cluster-muck. I would suggest if doing one yourself, Buy 1" nylon strap, cut it, tape it together, to make sure you can get it off and on, then take it to someone to have sewn.

Re: Dinghy Engine Lift Tote

I thought I'd post a photo of my very simple outboard motor lift. Here's my strap with the D-rings on each end....

..... it's quite worn, but still servicable. I know I had it on a former boat so it's at least thirty years old.


..... Here the strap is shown placed under the outboard and you may discern a small line from the halyard shackle to the forward outboard handle for balance. My extended tiller handle adds a use for easy guidance during a lift. Notice I tie the halyard to the D-rings. I would not want a snag accidentally pulling the shackle pin and dropping my outboard! This is the same way I tie my valuable self to a bosun's chair on a lifting halyard, but I don't use the 30 year old D-ring strap when I'm hanging on the line!
