Dinghy Davits

I recently added a set of dinghy davits to my 1986 C34 (Hull 54). They were made by Ocean Marine in Canada and turned out excellent. These are extremely well made units and the service I got was first class. Installed cost was about $800 and took me about 4 hours. Only 4 holes through the hull right above the rub rail; the rest of the mounting is done to the aft cockpit railing.  Davits easily handle my 9'6" inflatable with a 5hp motor (~130 lbs.) and collapse nicely when not in use. Contact Ocean Marine (Mike Thomas - proprietor is super to work with) at http://www.vru.com/ocean/ (Robert.Mack@digital.com).
