Simpson Series 7 Davit

My Simpson Series 7 Davit on the Starboard side was twisted in Hurricane Irma. Port one unscathed. Is there anyone out there with a Starboard Series 7 Davit to unload?? Or anyone need my Port Davit while I order a New Series 10 pair from the UK?

Boat refitting in Ft Lauderdale US.

Kato don't Sell Simpson Davits or parts as far as I can see. And mine is very twisted so I need the whole thing. New Series 10 is about US 7,000. Was hoping to get a deal on a used one. We'll see.

I understand Kato doesnít sell Simpson Davies, but have you contacted Simpson to see if they will sell repair parts? Your not of course the first to damage a Davit, and Is be surprised if they donít sell repair parts

Yes I started with them. They don't sell Series 7 anymore and do not hold inventory. The whole thing is twisted like a pretzel, so I need the whole port side assembly.
