Spacing of davits

What do you recommend for the spacing of davits relative to the spacing of the bow and stern lifting points on a dinghy?

I know at least one davits manufacturer recommends the spacing be much less that the lifting point spacing. This eliminates parallelogram-like skewing. Of course transverse straps will eliminate this too.

Re: Spacing of davits

You will still have to add cross horizontal ties to stop dinging from swinging. If you will also have motor on this heave end will hang straight.
I would look at were the best structural points to mount are.
