There-in lies the problem. A life raft storage
cabinet/area occupies the starboard side and it's door cannot support a mounting brace. The only suitable locations for support braces are on the extremes of the hull
to the port and starboard. This makes the width and dinghy
hanging angle well beyond the normal range. The rails just are not robust enough to support davits without braces. My local Beneteau
guy (Annapolis MD) also said that they don't have a good solution. But our community is so clever that I figured SOMEONE must have figured it out. (smile).
