What are these dinghy fittings?

I recently bought a RIB which has old Oregon registration markings on it. It appears to have davit fittings on the one side. Does anyone recognize the manufacturer? Since they are there, I'd be interested in tracking down the rest of the parts to allow me to load this RIB onto my swim grid.

My dinghy had similar fittings on it when I bought it, used, from a TF member who had it mounted on SeaWise davits on the swim grid of his boat. It was of similar size, weighing about 750lb. The other attachment points were on the FG parts and at the stern, the weight was too much for the FG at those attachment points. I replaced the glued on patches with glued on bits of hypalon to hide the damage dome by the originals and have lifted with normal davits, so no unusual stresses on the FG parts.

Thanks Keith for the feedback. They do indeed look like Sea Wise fittings.
