Transom on Gulfstar 41

I have a 74, 41ft gulfstar, I was thinking about adding davits to the boat and was wondering what the recommend weight limit is, I plan on mounting to the transom and adding a brackets from davits to the deck to help with the lateral forces.
Also while inspecting my backstay bracket, I noticed that the transom is starting to bow in where the bracket is currently mounted. If I add large plate on the inside and secure the backstay to that will that be a sufficient fix, or is this a more serious issue.
I am do plan on doing blue water cruising so I want to make sure that i do things correctly.
