The original 40, 43, and 46 had severe davit issues, to the extent that the Moorings insisted on dinghies being towed. They were eventually re-designed as something much stronger and R&C sent a team to Tortola to refit
the fleet. I would be very wary if my davits
were the original design;I don't know the capacities of the re-design but I think they worked out OK. Surely R&C could advise.
