on my 1980 Hatteras 37 Convertible my dinghy is secured with Weaver brackets and slip on brackets on the swim platform. i really like it as it is easy to secure and lift the dinghy on its side and secure quickly.
my 8HP Mercury outboard is secured on the swim platform as per attached photo. to prevent damaging my back further i am looking for an easier way of managing this instead of manhandling it. i looked at Garhauer lifting davit Garhauer Marine Hardware -10355047
and am looking for other suggestions.
i do not want to install davits to lift the dinghy together with the outboard as my dinghy securing arrangement is great.
any suggestions and experiences are welcome.
