As per my latest upgrade (2.9m RIB
with console and 15hp 4-stroke) I again need Yours advises.
Mother boat is Colvic Watson 29ft, heavy motorsailor, fitted with pair Whittal Davits
. Arms are made of double s/s tubes 1" od. I modify brackets and them looks strong, but as I hung RIB
(325 lbs) a lot of flexibility shown.
First solution that came to my head
is set of secondary backstays
from top of the mast
back to the davits
. Please advise me how big chance to bring damage to the mast
or make other mariners laugh over this idea.
Bigger motherboat or smaller RIB is not answer!
