When you get your davits, could you ping back with your experiences. I have a Niagara 35 here in the great Pacific Northwest
, and have been thinking adding davits to hoist my dink out of the water
. I've looked at the forespar units, but will now expand that search (thanks team).
Out here, it's not unusual to just tow your dingy behind you as you cruise
. That's what I've done for years with a 10 foot Hunter
Liberty. I just use oars or the sailing rig to get around. But as has been pointed out, you'll want the power and the RIB
if you're going offshore
. Though I would add that you should pull it off the davits and lash it to the fordeck while you're in transit. You don't want a following sea to rip it off in a storm on your way South.
Anyway, good luck with the project
and let me know how well those davits work.
