Wow, nice job. What Dinghy is that? I want one exactly like that with a sailing rig and two sets of Oarlocks; One for single pulling, and one for taking my baby out for a sunset...

Fantastic result, and so appropriate, Marty. Hope you've got the ole drain plug out of it when on the davits. That thing would hold a lot of water.

One day a couple of years ago, I arrived back at my boat to find the dinghy hanging just as I left it on the davits, but broke in half. Somehow, the davits and rigging held as the boat filled up with water from storms, and the glass hull snapped. The drain plug was gone as was everything else left in the boat, apparently fell out the bottom when she cracked. I never learned what happened but my guess is that something else clogged the drain.

Thanks Larry , the dinghy has one of those factory installed self drains . But you still have to push it open .

That really looks great, Marty. I can tell lots of forethought went into every step. I like the look with the wooden blocks.

Does it swing forward clear of the transom brackets or will you be adding a rub pad? It's hard to tell if the rub strip touches the bracket or tubing.

I like the cable harnesses you rigged for lifting. They look strong and professional.

I assume your bride is prepping for her next varnish job. She sure does good work!! Congrats on the new addition to W Liam!

Thanks FW , I have a small hooter ( fender ) that's what we call them in TN between the dinghy and transom holding it off the brackets . The cable harness is not working very well . I'm going to need something that will swivel at the top also to keep the blocks ligned up , probably a couple of swivel shackles. I need to do something to the three point harness in the dingy . Right now I have the middle tightned down so that I can get more lift height . But when I do that I can't get the three point harness unhooked from the dinghy . The side hook ups are to tight ,maybe a cam cleat on the center pick up point so I can loosen and tighten to be able to unhook all the dinghy harness . The harness came with the dinghy . It's an option that the PO added when ordering dinghy .
Joy is done with varnish work this year . She said the teak on the dinghy can get that weathered look .
I know I should have removed the entire name on the transom but time wasn't on my side to get those davits mounted . By the way the heat gun works great for removing the letters .

Most likely you will need to put 4 pad eyes in the Bottom of the boat ,

to be able to raise it high enough and stay stable.

It seems to get more stable with more weight added . This was my first time rowing with more than myself .
