You may find it easier to get 2x6's and double them up instead of finding 4x6's.....but I am sure a single 2x6 at each end would support your dinghy

Bill - Have you reached out to Versachock? Owner Jeff is very involved and accommodating and they do custom work so we would say it's at least worth a conversation.

I did and he mentioned something custom could be ordered. Before I go that route I'm checking that there's not something else out there already. I may take them up on the one-off and get it un-drilled so I can better match up with how our platform is set up.

Will be interested to see what you end up doing. Much nicer setup than on a V358😁

I am in process of figuring out dinghy chicks to mount AB 310 AL on my boat deck. I reached out to two places to fabricate based on AB CAD drawing. One uses 1" thick HDPE (Starboard), the other welded aluminum. Both were in the $1500 range, plus shipping. Attached pic is similar style but not exact for my AB

McMaster Carr sells fiberglass sheets of up to 1" thick. Cheaper and stronger than HDPE but more difficult to work with. I can purchase 3-inch SS angle cut in 3-inch lengths from Online Metals.com for the base attachment points. Roughly $400 in materials and a weekend of futzing with power tools.
