We have a West Marine
HP275 that has served us well, first on our Catalina
22 and now on our Tayana 37
. We are in the process of moving down to just one dinghy
- the HP275 - and would like to store it on the davits
Has anyone rigged a bridle
system for an HP275?
I am a little uncertain where to attach the bridle
to make it as secure as possible without jeopardizing the long-term life of the dinghy
. There are a few lifting handles that I could use, but I am worried they might pull away from the body eventually. I could also drill through the rigid floor, but I am concerned that bouncing around on the davits
, it might pull out the removable floor.
I would love to see anyone's bridle solutions, hear experiences, and entertain some ideas.
