I step through the transom door onto the swimstep so I am standing beside the davit arms, then step into the open space in the dinghy behind the seat. I release the stern cables then step across the 2 seats to release the forward cable. I think it would be very awkward to work through the davit arms because of the cross- braces, as you say.

My davit and door are offset but I think otherwise you would want to step over the davit arm either way and step into the dinghy from outboard of the arms.
