Single line davits?


Recommended Posts

Is there a simple way to convert 2 separate lifting lines into a single longer line (can’t get my head around how to re-thread the blocks to achieve this)?

Thinking that if I can do this then lead the single line to one of the sheet winches for an easier lift.

Have them both come through a single block. Which would mean having one run from port to starboard (or vice versa) then tie them together so the bow and stern are the same height. And attach that tie point to your winch. 

Probably needs a picture...

You'll need to redirect the line to the winch so it doesn't get an overrun.... But that's the general gist...
