They can take a battering and not leak, easy to repair with a bit of epoxy in an emergency, don't come apart in the sun and crocodiles find them harder than inflatables to chew. (Inflatables , teething rings for crocs)
The inflatable tubes around the side are on sail trac and are made by a local co called Air O Float.
They make the boat bloody stable and easier to get in and out of when free diving or just snorkeling around.
Hey Beno? Do you run a dry stack exhaust mate?

My plan so far is to locate the winch in the engine room almost directly below the mast with the hoist cable running in a conduit to deck level. Launching and recovering the dinghy requires the use of two halyards: boom up/down and hook up/down. The electric winch has power-up and power-down but only one drum. The remote control has a convenient plug/receptacle arrangement so it can be removed and stowed away when not in use.

If any forum menbers have done or considered doing something similar, what did you come up with?
I would like to know where you bought your hoist and how much do they run?
Thank you very much,

Greetings,
Welcome aboard! http://www.harborfreight.com/2500-lb...rol-61840.html

Seems to be on sale now with a wireless remote no less.
I have a mast and boom lift for the dink BUT two winches (boom/hook). Came with the vessel, no idea the source. The mast is in a tabernacle but has never been down as of yet. I'm planning on building a cradle for it to sit in when lowered. The problem I have is one of the winches is above the boom and interferes with the boom nesting against the mast so I'll have to relocate it somewhere. Your idea of conduit is excellent. Thanks.

bought the same $49 HF ATV winch...bolted it to the underside of the boom, added a group 24, 12V battery at the base of the boom...plan on wiring that battery someday as an emergency battery for electronics...also adding solar charger as of now just throw a car charger on when I use the hoist several time.

I knew that using a block& tackle to raise and lower the boom wasn't the issue...it was moving the boom, steadying the load and keeping the load a given distance from the boom that was important...so the one winch/one drum works for me...

For awhile I thought of using 2 lines with loops and stopper blocks like they have on sailboats and just one winch....I would use the winch where needed (mounted near the base of the mast....stopper the one line, disconnect from the loop and attach to the other line...going back and forth as needed. But I wound up just using a nice 4 part block and tackle with new line on the boom lift so it works well enough.

Just a reminder...the warning on the winch says "not for overhead lifting"...it doesn't have a drum brake/positive engagement....so be careful.

I was lucky...the galvanized winch cable rusted pretty bad in only a year...the first 20 feet or so that was on the outside of the spool.

Luckily I had been dragging around a really nice piece of stainless hoist cable off an old USCG Helo hoist. One of the guys had already crimped a regular hook onto the cable so now my winch is better than new.
