All of it is stainless steel. They added the round connector on the end of the davit that you can see in the above photo. I have to install these and measure between and Garhuer will send the correct size bar to steady them when being used... I'm very happy!!! They will go into the transom and when not in use, will be pulled out and folded up and stored. I will put a plug or cup holder of some type where the hole on the top of the transom will be for the 2" verticle post to slide into. The base has a rotating ball that the davit sits on making it able to swing 360... WIll install this weekend after the snow melts we got last night...

Hey Go!

I know you are an improviser extraorinaire so I thought I'd send you apic of something that might cover up the hole: Not sure if this one is the right size but it seems like there outght to be something out there that is. :)

WOW is that shiny!!!

(I MEAN THE DAVITS, DOUG!!!) :) Just funnin' with ya.

Can you post where you got those again, I lost the original thread?
What size is the base, meaning, if the davit can take 200lbs, can the deck? Backing plate? Angle brace? I am trying to figure out the leverage issue, I'd like to have one of those on my boat.

Funny guy with the shiney joke!!! :arr

Got the davits through : http://garhauermarine.com/catalog.cfm

and select "lifting davit". I have the model which has a longer extension arm (34"). The base has a ball attached to a round plate that has a backing plate for the underside of the mount to the deck. So it is secure. There is also a connection for a hand rail to steady the horizontal post. When I get a chance, I'll take some photos...

Temporarily set up (Still have to seal the holes and install the bases that the davit base poles sit on).

Then we have an Admiral with way too much time on her hands... note the new name:

What is the model of the davits. Not what I saw on the site. How heavy is your dinghy? With/without motor? What is the reach from the transom to the end of the davits (beam of the dinghy)? Approximately cost if you care to share?
