    Davit for 45XX-gctid378058

    I would like to replace the factory davit whit one mounted further aft and supported by a base bolted to the cockpit sole and have an 800 lb. capacity. Has anyone done this and where might be a good place to look in the PNW for a replacement?

    I am in the process of replacing my factory davit on my 4588. I am currently in contact with Advanced Marine Technologies in Vancouver. I have some .pdf drawing is you care to look at? The problem/solution is the rotation of the cran to clear the radar arch. I too am looking at mounting the base more aft. Here is a pic of one of there solution on a 47, I think?

      I would be interested in learning a bit more about what you are looking at. Can you send a link to the PDF or send via email (PM me for my address).

      Thanks

        Dave,

        I can't offer much help on replacement davit but check your PM inbox- sent you a message regarding your existing davit.

          The picture above is of a stock 47 base and post but with an aftermarket arm attached.

          While I am sure that it is possible to add a more robust 45 davit we are unaware of any from our experiences.

          Please note that the 45 and 47 do not share any parts between their davits and that the flybridge deck construction as well as the flybridge sides vary greatly in their load capability and dimensions.

          I would be concerned that the 45 can handle extra loads based upon that construction but if that is a goal I would attempt to keep the most weight over or near the underlying rear bulkhead formed around the saloon door.

          Hope this helps

            Another option is to go with a transom davit. Below is my 4588 with a 1000lb Nick jackson Davit with a 11' AB RIB with aluminum hull about 700# loaded.

            This also frees up your bridge deck space of other things. After having the stern davit I would never consider gong back to the Bridge davit. I can also single handed launch the dingy Less than 2 min.

                  We have done this upgrade a few years ago. When with Brower 800 lb hydraulic linear winch model WC800

                  http://www.browersystems.com/products/wc-series/

                  We did not move from the existing location but built a stronger base and tied into the existing superstructure that was in place.

                  Call Brower and ask Russ, they are very responsive and do a great job...PM me if you would like, happy to answer any other questions
