Max load 180 Kg. Pics are not working for me either - send them an email and ask for pics. Generally Garhauer  stuff is good quality with great warranties. I have a bit of it, but not davits...

 

I saw the 180kg thing but somewhere in my memory banks I recall that snatch loads from slamming and wave motion can generate 2-3x static load i.e. the same stuff that causes rigs to come down in heavy conditions. Hence I think they look a bit lightweight for my purposes.

I think the design looks ok, and they should hold a 180KG dinghy in heavy conditions. If not they are not suitable for their task. I'd saysSpeak to Garhauer about it, dont presume from the website.

Rigs shouldn't come down in any conditions, if in good order , and the boat stays upright....

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Thanks. Assume it's a yacht?

 

We're a cat, so fitted onto a vertical transom. They would fit straight onto a horizontal surface, but anything else would need a bracket to be made up.

OK. Still keen to see any pics you can post or send when convenient.

 

I like the look of these - relatively simple and clean - but not sure if they would lift the dinghy high enough? I want to raise it high enough that I can still use the transom steps by walking under the dinghy - maybe these are too low?

As it is very unlikely you'll ever be asked to play a Xmas Elf, Hobbit or any one of Snow Whites 7 mates, having walk under height could be a big ask ;)

The other boat that we viewed (same make, same size) had davits fitted that enabled this. Hence I know it's possible (and yes I'm trying to find out who did those ones too as it was done in Auck)!
