We used the Trick Davit System with the extensions on our trawler platform - a very easy install. As JD mentioned, pretty much everything comes in the package. Because of the wide slats on our swim platform, we did make one change to the mounting system.... we added a 1/4" stainless steel backing plate that ran the full depth of the platform.
We finally launched Delia Rosa a few days ago and and were able to test the launching and retrieving our dinghy with the motor..... the system works very well... no pictures in the water, but here's a few on land...
