I have seen that Nick Jackson davit on a boat and really like the looks and concept. It swings the boat out past the swim platform my current Kato davits lower it straight down and the dinghy gets caught on the swim platform and has to be pushed off. I haven't seen the N. J. davit in operation and wondered if the cross bracing would make it difficult to get in and out of the dinghy to unhook it while the arms are still connected in the down position? or do you operate it in another way?
