Question New arch davits

Hello friends. I continue to experience problems with the davits on my sailing cat. They were underdesigned and are breaking where they attach to the transom. I would like to have a custom davit system fabricated and installed. I am not a do-it-yourselfer. I am looking for a shop that can do the job anywhere along the east coast. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate their input.

Hi, I know a guy he is a one man band. He does tuna towers and t-tops all sorts of stuff in Aluminum. He is located just south of the Blue Heron Bvd on Singer Island in West Palm beach. He is a liveaboard sailor. Damn good welder fabricator. I have sent a message to a mutual friend to get his email, are you interested??

Also in S New Jersey,
www.atlantictowers.com

They can have someone engineer and install. Strictly aluminum. I used their
"Tower in a Box" for my Gemini. Very light and strong.
