Craig: The most weight I've seen on a Pacific Trawler boat deck is around 650 lbs, but the tender is serviced by a dedicated and sufficiently rated low profile davit. Most Pacific Trawler owners using the factory mast/boom only seem to use it for fairly light picks. Capt. T had a good idea about running it by Roger.
Capt. T: Welcome onboard Trawler Forum! Hope you have success in finding another Pacific Trawler to own. Regarding Craig's avatar, I believe it is a pic of his old boat, a Willard 30.
