The Davits took longer than anticipated, so we only got the wiring completed for the solar and wind generator. Next weekend is the Long Beach Grand Prix, so it will be another couple weeks before it all gets done.

The davits came out quite nice though....

Ken do you intend to stay brace the Davit terminals ? -- something like this:-

Also pulling in the dinghy's starboard tube hard up to the bases of the davits when underway.

We still have a few more braces to put on this week. He needed to install the basic unit then take measurements. We will install one across the middle, two more to the middle of the pushpit railing and probably reinforce the pushpit railing to the deck.

Lori is really happy to have free deck space for tanning.

I almost installed davids on S/Y Thetis last year but I chickened out. Now that I see how nice your look I am having second thought.

Enjoy the extra space and the convenience.

Davits look great Trim! Let us know when you come up with a solution that also allows for our wind vane At present our RIB sits atop our life raft on the foredeck and while it has quick release pins its not the ideal place to store it if we want to get to the life raft in a hell of a hurry. It's all a compromise I guess - bigger the boat - more toys on board

hi . We recently acquired a 12 ft x 6ft speedboat with centre control powered by 45 hp mercury. Originally we had a 8ft fibre glass flat bottom tender to ferry fuel, water, passengers etc ashore, but with 6 passngers it was very unstable and a trcky business to get aboard if there was a swell. We had a davit arrangement at the stern using 2 fold purchase to hoist the tender and a platform to support it. The speedboat is considrbly larger so we built a new davit arrangement and hoist the speedboat using a 5 ton chain block on to supports which are thn hoisted with the blocks. The speedboaat is then positioned probably around 8 ft above the stern water line.

We made no stability calculations for the new arrangment, but am still a bit worried if we encounter a rough sea. Anyone with any ideas on davits and installation. We used 3 inch galvanised steel piping and 4 x 6 inch hardwood. My boat is 75ft long, 47 tonnes, 2 masted schooner built in Bira, Indonesia of teak and Ironwood.
