RE: Dink lighting

That's a lot of $s and weight on the duckboard. I like the look of those Trick Davits, but my duckboard is not wide enough for either, so neither would work for me. I currently use Weaver snap davits on the edge of the duckboard, but as the damn pads with the loops would not stay glued to the pontoons, I just hook the stout and well fixed side rope on the port pontoon onto the weaver clips and swing her up by a block and tackle, and I adapted the pads to act as buffers for the pontoon to rest against to protect it from chafing against the points of the Snap fitting. Works quite well and dirt cheap.
