We have a set of St. Croix davits. They seem strong enough (350 lbs, I believe) and keep the dink a good 3 ft. or more out of the water. They did seem to sway sideways a lot so I made up the stabilizer bar between them, which can also be purchased. I then tie the dink back to the davits with a couple of ratchet straps and it doesn't move. Very little time or effort to deploy or retrieve.
