I am trying to figure out how to get a long dinghy
onto my trimaran
The original dinghy
hung off davits
between the main hull
and ama. The problem is that type of dinghy is too small for what I am looking to do.
Sky hook. Yeah don't have one.
Seriously, any suggestions. The problem with coming along side is the trimaran
is so wide the boom doesn't extend out over the side. Further the main sidestay for the mast
gets in the way of a long dinghy.
My best approach is from the stern and then up and onto the aka. This is a vertical lift
of about 6 feet.
The problem is if I just pull on the nose of the dinghy the stern would fill with water
I almost need something like a crane that pivots. I am thinking two spars for the lift
as well as a smaller spar to help leverage. I am think of pairs as the dinghy would set between the spars which then lower down to the deck
Anyone seen something like this? Any ideas?
I want to keep under about 500 lbs for the lift if possible. Dinghy with engine
will weigh around 1000 lbs.
