Hello Steve. Your system looks great. Help me understand though... in picture two there is a metal U-shape (extended 'u') that goes over the gunnel. Is that welded to your post or ??

Also, I see two lines aft to the port and starboard corners of the dink but nothing forward? Did I miss something. How do you get your Walker Bay up and down?

I've a similar centerline davit so my upper looks like yours -- just need to figure out the inboard part of the dinghy, as in how to hold it in place.

And yes, I know I could place it on the swim platform. The problem with that is I could not get out of the water -- it would block my swim steps. Being able to self-rescue is important, especially since I'm a soloist.
Janice aboard Seaweed, living the good life afloat...
