Re: Dingy to Heavy For My Davits

Here's what i would do with 10K: i'd get a pencil and paper, design a davits or other solution, buy materials online and put them together in my workshop. I would then take the remaining 8K and spend it in a stripclub.

Re: dingy to heavy for my Davits

Stainless steel fabricator could do the same design as your current davits but in heavier SS tube.

Or is it you pulling it up? Electric winch

Re: dingy to heavy for my Davits

so you thing that I can simply remove the existing davits and go for heavier materiel and the rest of the boat will be good for the extra weight?

Re: dingy to heavy for my Davits

I wouldn't assume that. The L410 davit design is a cantilever that relies on the mounting point strength - I think the arms themselves are pretty robust (3" schedule 40 SS pipe?). 600lbs is a LOT of weight for this type of design. You will need to make sure that the attachment point can take the load - and that means a dynamic load, which will be 3X the static load. A better design is an arch that is in compression on a beefed up mounting spot.

Re: Dingy to Heavy For My Davits

I would have to agree with colemj especially on the mounting. Most davits seem to have a inadequate footprint and, or an inadequately reinforced deck.
