Glued up, crossing my fingers

Finished gluing the new replacement pads this morning. The instruction and the internet research wore me out! The picture that came with the pads show a fella gluing to an inflated dinghy, but then they have a line in the instructions that state you may want do deflate for better adhersion. I chose to glue them deflated. It allowed me to set the weight on the pads and made rolling the pads out more effective ( so I think). I found a couple hits on other forums that recommended installing deflated. I also attached a picture of the new swivel mount.

It certainly looks like you did it right. Hope you have a good result. I don't think one just gets "lucky" putting these on and your best chance is to take your time and do it right as it appears you probably have. Nice job. Like to hear if you are happy with it in the end

I don't know what the minimum is but the instructions say put them as far apart as you can.

I'm tryin' to get the dinghy to lie flat where I want to put the pads but there is a 1 1/2" rub strake right under them. I'm thinkin' of puttin' shims under both side of the strake to make that part flat. 1/16" shims oughta do it. The hard part is gettin' the aft pad on.

I used 40# bags of pelletized lime that I had laying around. You could use sand bags. I set the bags under the pad area and then set a board on top of the bag so it was flat and solid. You could use bags of sand.
My pads look rally tight. I think they will hold up.

The instructions say to do the initial gluing with the tubes inflated. Then deflate and roll out any bubbles that may be under the pad. Once the initial gluing is accomplished I'm sure a variety of weighting solutions could be done easily...
The initial bond is already done.
Read the directions for both the davits and glue. It's pretty easy to follow...
I'm getting ready to do mine in a week or so..

Epic failure!

The rotating motor mount doesn’t work on my dinghy. I have a Zodiac RL275 with a 6 HP 4 stroke Tohatsu. The weaver pads are on the starboard side of the dinghy. When the dinghy is pulled up and the motor is rotated it only rotates 45 degrees due to interference on the dinghy transom and the tubes and the motor is lying on the wrong side. If anyone has any ideas they would be appreciated.

We inflated the dinghy and glued on the Weaver pads takin' into account the low humidity of southern California by cuttin' the wait times in half. With the help of the Sicilian, we placed the pads on the dinghy and by constant kneading got the edges to stick without deflatin' the dinghy. Put some weights on the pads just to be on the safe side. For those of you that are interested in the technical aspects; the weights are two boxes of hard cast .44 cal. semi-wad cutter, lead bullets. Gonna let the dinghy sit for six days before movin' it.

Glued mine up yesterday....Stuck great afer some kneading and rolling..Not hard...Just follow the instructions to the letter. Due to the existing fittings on the boat, available Pad gluing area, small platform and fold down swim step on the starboard, I'll have to mount the davits assymetrically on the platform....Shouldn't affect function at all.

And after trying a fitting the other day without the pads glued on I found that my Swim platform is too low and too curved for the standard brackets I ordered. Made up some Riser/extenders out of some aluminum i-Beam I had on hand, Powdercoated them white (having that set-up in the garage is handy)...Now to line everything up, Mark the riser to platform holes and bolt it all together after the pads set-up. Almost ready to cruise!









Low platform mounting challenge!

Hi Dave...Basically yes. I fabbed up a holder that bolts to my flybridge ladder.
It will only need to hold a 2hp Honda. Pretty much out of the way here. With a small boat you need to get creative on storing cruising gear!

With the help of the Sicilian, I got the dinghy mounted on the swim step. I had to move one mount to get it to work.
