Dinghy Tow

I've just purchased a used Dinghy Tow system for our boat. It's an alternative to davits which tows the the dinghy backwards while raising the stern out of the water. The seller included installation instructions and a jumble of parts with no parts diagram. It would be tremendously helpful to see an installed system either in person or in photos. Can anyone steer me in that direction? Many thanks!

Re: Dinghy Tow

Thanks, Jim. That's helpful! My main challenge is identifying the various parts and their proper rigging. I have 2 sets of 2 plates with cam cleats that I know are for the lateral lines and for the lifting line but I don't know which is which. Do you have a picture of the ster rail rigging? Thanks in either case!

Re: Dinghy Tow

Hi again, Jim. I've re-read the installation manual a couple of times and it's starting to make sense. I think I'll be able to easily rig this system on my boat. Thanks again for posting your photo!
