Can anyone explain the davit system on a 2010-era Lagoon to me?
I would like to understand exactly how the davits
mount: there is an outer SS flange that bolts onto the outside of the hull
, and then a steel
tube runs diagonally internally from there to what looks like a socket on the transverse beam below decks.
How is this tube attached to the rest of the davits
If I were to remove the bolts that I can see from the outside, would the whole davit come free? What would the situation be with the diagonal support tube?
We have a 2010 L421. The davits of that time all seem to be the same design for other models, however.
After hearing of several folks having trouble with their davits breaking, usually on passages we have decided to upgrade to an arch-like system that reaches high enough to hold our solar panels
at the same height as the bimini
In order to do this, it seems prudent to use the strongpoints as designed by Lagoon
, hence my question.
Thanks for any constructive pointers and information.
