Davit capacity

I am attempting to establish the lift capacity of my davit. There is no obvious labeling. Davit is on a 1989 Cheoy Lee 52 trawler. I believe it is stock. Any suggestions?

Welcome to the forum! Posting a few pics of your davit would be helpful.

With pictures, a few dimensions and material cross sections one can do some basic yield calculations apply a safety factor and walla you have a maximum capacity determination. Any structural engineer can do it.

Contact Choey Lee. Or look for the davit makers name on the davit.
