The Sea Wise allows us use of the swim step for boarding, swimming or fishing off the starboard side. If the dink is not being used, and we are sitting in the cockpit, it can be partially lowered (45 deg) to allow for full scenic views to the aft.

The dink can be fully lowered, gas tank connected, and boarded in a couple of minutes. Boarding is very stable while the dink is in the water but still attached to the davits.

If it is calm, the dink can also be temporarily moored by attaching it to the davits and left in the water without need for any fenders or lines.
