I have what may be the worlds ugliest, but very functional catamaran arch with all the junk you list plus a swim platform, GPS antenna, VHF antenna for SkyMate, flag, outboard stowage board, mainsheet traveler, and swim latter. It was installed by a previous owner (I added the traveler and davits). I would have thought that it could have been designed with some style but no . . . You can see a photo of it with our new yellow catamaran dink hanging from davits in my photo gallery on this forum. (or try this link http://www.cruisersforum.com/gallery/showimage.php?i=3282&catid=member&imageuser=223 )

I would really miss its functionality if I didn’t have it but I think with a little imagination it could be curved and not look like an industrial quality erector set.

Ram, here is a link to the manufactures site with pictures or our arch. Victory Catamarans With Arch Davit. Of the 4 pictures only the left most picture is not our boat.

These were taken before we bought the boat and renamed her. There are now 4 solar panels and a wind generator installed. Sorry I have nothing more current.

Wow! Really, I swear I saw that same scaffolding in the paint department at Home Depot!

I can understand your wonder at the lack of styling, but I can see how, at the same time, you would find it very functional.
