Has anyone had experience with using an extension to the boom to lift
something on and off a platform above the davits
at the stern of a Lagoon 440
? I have an object that will weigh in the order of 220kg but will need to be swung out to either the Port or Starboard side to be lowered in to the water
. It only needs to be raised about 300mm to clear it's cradle
, and slewing the boom may require disconnecting the traveller briefly to get sufficient slew. I'm sure it will be well within load limits for the boom, but interested if any one has done the same.
