That was a strange little interlude, well done Northern Spy. Looks like I will be buying the Garhauer unit for $321

Andy, guessing it`s like the St Croix, where would you fit it, where will the dinghy sit, can you leave the outboard attached?

Congrats, Northern Spy. I was thinking that it is quite nicely sized and finished to look appropriate on a Nordic 26.

Yes it's similar, slightly longer arm at 34". It's not for the dingy, it's for the two Kayaks I've got.I plan to have a SS bracket made so they can be stowed on top of the aft cabin roof, across the boat. That's the plan anyway.

Just a quick follow up.

The good news: TXCruiser was great to do business with. The crane was well packed and shipped in a timely manner. The crane was in very good condition and even included manuals.

The bad news: I had it shipped to my parents house in the Finger Lakes of NY. They opened the box and liked it. They really, really liked it. So much that it is being mounted on their Mainship to lift Mom's kayak on the fore deck. They are even thinking about getting another mount to use for stern.

Sigh.

LOL. That's a hoot, NS. After everything, you still ended up empty handed. Just after you made the deal, I found the one I was looking for in a Marine Salvage joint here in Stuart, FL. Cost me about 550 bucks including installation, and I'm trying to make up my mind about the kind of winch to install.....manual or electric.
