Thanks. Your stern will look great with a swim step when you do. My brother owned a Pilgrim 40 here in Texas, lost it in Ike. He always wanted a swim step but could never configure one that would look proper on her stern. He wrestled with the dinghy issues with her too. Good Luck, she'll look nice whatever you do.

Almost done . Need to add some cleats and that's it . Because of the transom door and to keep everything on center we could only go 3 ft wide at the transom mount . We splayed each davit so I could wind up 4ft centers at the pickup point . We made some heavy duty back up plates also . I've got some old teak blocks coming from FF for the rigging .

Well I guess I'm still kinda hung up (no pun intended) on traditional sailboat stuff . I might even go with a CQR one of these days I also think FF gets a kick out of helping me fix this old work boat up , but without your photoshop ideas and everyone here with their suggestions I would not be this far with this project . I almost put the dinghy on the roof , but most everybody here said

These are the blocks I got from FF . I'm pretty sure the are homemade but in decent shape. A little clean up,sanding , maybe a fresh coat of oil some new line and shackles , they should come back nice.

"I'm pretty sure the are homemade but in decent shape."

They were std on TT sail boats from the 70's.

Probably were home made there, but by the hundreds!

I bet it hurt to drill all those holes? Did we measure more than once?

Nice job!

Yes it did hurt . The guy that made them had already drilled the holes , I would not have put in that many. I have a 1/4 sst backing plate on the backside . I would have like to install them about 3" higher but it was too tight the closer I got to cap rail .The boat is a two piece hull and liner . I had to cut hand access holes in the liner to get to transom. I only had about three inches to work with between hull and liner. Hindsight I would have drilled and tapped the backing plate . It would have made the install much easier. My hands are already pretty beat up but now the they look like they have been thru a meat grinder and all cuts are sealed with 4200.

Man....that's really a nice looking setup. Hope it performs as well. With that rather narrow gauge, the gusset supports you put underneath the davits may be useful in keeping the dinghy still.

Thanks Larry and Sailor.
The pick up points on the davits are 4' part and the dinghy is at 5 ' apart , I'm hoping this will help keep the dinghy still also . That transom door made it tough to work around .
