RE: Best hard dinghy with weaver snap davits?

I have a Gig Harbor 12' (Point Defiance), which I used as a dinghy on our Monk 36. I had it laid up in kevlar instead of fiberglas to save weight, and also make it stiffer. It's a great dinghy - it has two rowing stations, mast and sails, and eletric trolling motor that bolts on to the rudder. Laid up in kevlar, it weighs about 130 lb. I had davits on the stern of the Monk, so we kept it horizontal and it was very easy to lift with a 2 part tackle. It is also stiff enough in kevlar to use as a tilt up.
