It's not really in the way. We have two chairs with a set of nesting tables on that side and a couch on the other side. There is no dinette in the boat so the salon is wide open. The only problem is fitting carpets around it without having an expensive custom carpet made.

Those are fighting words! To all the Mainship owners, he didn't mean it. Think happy thoughts! Lol

We have had our 2005 Mainship 430 aft cabin trawler for two summers and love it. It has the Yanmar 370 twins and we are very pleased with the performance on the NY Canal system, Hudson River and Long Island Sound.

I'm interested to see how others have accommodated their dink davits.

Also, I'm also interested to learn of other 'quality' issues with this model - so we can prepare for contingencies.

Thanks all,

JimL

jimL, We'll be at the boat this weekend and I'll take a couple pictures of the dinghy davit.

Davit pictures for jimL. This is a modified Roskelley Olsson davit. Yes, I know you can't see the name on the transom. The name is also on both sides of the flybridge.

That is an interesting set up. Do you know how much the boat and motor weigh? I had to have my swim platform rebuilt last winter because the PO did not seal the small davit system and the coring (wood) turned to mush, froze and delamated the fiberglass ($6k). I'm not sure the swim platform can take the weight of the davits, boat and motor without causing damage. I would want to mount the davit system closer to the transom, putting less stress on the swim platform. Do you know if the davit supports are located on the struts that support the swim platform?

Thanks for sharing the pics. The boat looks sharp!

First a disclaimer. Sam Olsson is a friend of mine. The dinghy and motor weigh about 850 lbs. The davit is older than the boat and was on it when we bought it. It's an early Roskelley Olsson model. Sometime in the past a drain hole in one of the tubes was plugged and water got inside. When the water froze it expanded the tube. Sam saw that and told me he would rebuild it for me. At the same time we made a change to the design so I could move between the davit and transom. I also discarded the weak supports under the platform (not the factory supports, these were under the davit) and replaced them with a triangulated 1 1/2 inch square tube structure on each side. I removed the swing down swim ladder from the port side because it couldn't be used with the dinghy up. I installed an under platform ladder on the other side. We've had the boat 3 1/2 years now and are very happy with it. Last summer I installed a Webasto hydronic heating system and this winter it's been nice and toasty inside. Hope you're staying warm in NY.

Porman,

Thanks for the info and the warm wishes. Later this week we'll be near 50F and next week back to seasonal sub freezing temps.

I think you highlighted the significant difference in the MS 430 aft cabin is that you or the PO enhanced the support structure for the swim platform resulting in a defined weight it will bear.
I have a series of pictures and measurements that I plan to take to the NYC boat show and try to develop a solution for our particular situation.

Thank you very much for the pics! You have a beautiful boat.

Based on the limited editions of the Mainship 430 aft cabin trawlers - I think we should start our own thread if it doesn't already exist.
