Livingston recommended length?

Hi all,

Checking to see if any input on the max length of a Livingston dinghy to use with weaver davits on the swim platform of a CHB34, beam I believe is around 11'6''.

Thank you for any input.

Our Livingston is 8 ft that is mounted on swim platform of a 34 Mainship MK1 with 11.9 beam. I added supports brackets with pads to support the weight (140lbs) and also to thru bolt the Weaver attachments instead of using the outer edge of the swim platform. We added thru bolted cleats fore and aft on the Livingston to haul dinghy up on the transom. Stand off brackets (18") keep the Livingston firmly in place.

We had a 10' on our old 36' Trojan. Used the boat hook to pull it up. Wasn't too difficult.

Looks awesome, thank you. Is that custom made?

Yes, A local metal fabricator that makes S Steel commercial kitchen made them out of 1/4 SS plate and 3/4 tubing. You can't be in a hurry... it's always worth the wait.
