Are my davits strong enough for this dinghy?

Saw this nice RIB in the Cannes port today, I think I need one on my Lagoon380 but not too sure if the davits will take the weight..

Then saw it later driving down the main street..

No problem - I think its davits will hold your Lagoon just fine.

Re: Are my davits strong enough for this dinghy?

my guess is no. That's a very heavy dingy! Only way to know for sure is ask teh weight of the dink and ask lagoon the davit rating.

Re: Are my davits strong enough for this dinghy?

Notice the tires in the rear and that little electric motor on the front one. What we have here is a gen you wine amphibious vehicle folks. And I thought he was joking about seeing it driving down the street. He doth speaketh the truth! Drive that little rascal right up the boat ramp and you are ready to shmooze with the stars.
PS Lighten up Thor.

Hey Rob!

When you have sorted out the pity davits problem (and I think they'll need beefing up if you can even fit the new dinghy in the space between the hulls), let me know and we'll meet somewhere - I want a ride!
