Re: Carrying & Launching a Dinghy
I would think for a davit, you would need to run the post/mast for it right through the cabin cabin roof and through the cabin sole into keel/bottom somwhere. Maybe against the cabin bulkhead, alongside the companionway framing? Its a light boat, but out on a lever arm so how much does it "really" weigh when being hoisted. Miy instinct is that is seems like a lot of stress for just a surface mount with a backing plate through the roof, though I am no guru
What does Tom Lathrop say about these suggestions?
This new ship here is fitted according to the reported increase of knowledge among mankind. Namely, she is cumbered end to end with bells and trumpets and clocks and wires. It has been told to me she can call voices out of the air or the waters to con the ship while her crew sleep. But sleep though lightly. It has not yet been told to me that the sea has ceased to be the sea.--Rudyard Kipling
