Re: Lagoon 440/450

Yes, when I first fitted them and lifted the dinghy it rotated on to its side. However with short cords from the centre of the aft bar to the dinghy floor attachment points this stopped, although not as stable as with strops and dangling lower. What I do is raise the stern a foot above the water and then lift the bow to hit the davits so it can't rotate.

I also just discovered the lock on the honda motor so it can't rotate! Doh!
