Dinghy Davits

I am in need of some davits for a dinghy.
This is what is on the boat and can't seem to find a square davit.
Does anyone know if they make them and are out there or a brand name?
The inside is shy of 4" X 3"

Re: Dinghy Davits

I used to own an old pair of Danforth davits (I think) which has a fairly squarish base, which had dimensions similar to what you mention, much like the one's advertised one time ago in this CF ad

For Sale: Danforth Davits - Massachusetts

Your picture doesn't come thru. If I think I know what you're looking for you might try the Edson site. Be sitting down and have the defib panels ready. Edson is mighty proud of their products.

Try Garhauer. Great folks, and they ONLY deal direct. If you don't see what you want, call them. Probably less than half what you would pay elsewhere.
