    Question on Snap Davits...-gctid382045

    Ok, I think snap davits are in my future so I'm posting two links. Could you guys tell me if this is a good price and is this all I need for installation? And, are the quick release things worth getting or a waste of money?

    They are costly for sure but any other way is kind of a pain. You will enjoy having them

      I've come to grips with that. They are a needed purchase at this point.

        I ordered half my snap davit stuff from defender. Actually just got my last parts, the stand offs. After tonight my damn setup will finally be complete!

        I did order glue, davits themselves (4'' extended) from weaver, other then that the other stuff came from defender, including those quick releases.

          I'm going to try to save some $$$$ and avoid the standoffs but I suspect the rope will look like crap to me and I'll be adding the standoffs soon enough.:livid:

            I dis that at first. Tying it on was a pain. When i got the standoffs it was a halaluya moment.

              Note that Weaver has a liberal exchange policy. The davits come in different heights and lengths to accommodate different transom heights and configurations. The quick release plates can be mounted on your transom permanently and the davits themselves can be swapped out for a different size if needed.

              Just food for thought.

                I had ropes for about 4 days, waiting for my standoffs to come in, they are now installed. Very nice and she holds up just fine at cruise speed
