Re: Dinghy davit lines

I ran my lines exactly like the instructions that came with my davits said to. Not that they are right.

stop blowing smoke up my rear, blow it at the sails instead

Re: Dinghy davit lines

I don’t want to sound smug, but I don’t have any blocks or tackles to hoist my 150lbs dinghy and outboard eight feet up to my davits. I just have single lines and a button marked up and down. See Lifting the dinghy with an electric hoist
