I agree. I think I would use the dink more with the davits than I would if it was on the
roof. It won't jack up my mooring cost and I can drop the dink while at the covered slip and row around the marina when bored .

Its not a Duffy. BHM ( Fly point Marine) built the hull, but I don't think they did the build out.

The likelihood of that happening is very slim. There are lots of boats running offshore with tenders on transom mounted davits. And the dink getting pooped is almost unheard of.
