RE: Safety and the MOB

Yes. Actually, the dinghy is on Weaver Davits on the swim platform. Which, in and of itself, complicates the process even more.

I don't consider the radar arch to really be a feasible option. It's not only fairly narrow - possibly three or four feet inboard, but the hard sundeck cover it rigged to it where any MOB recovery rig will need to attach.

I know those boat cranes have a name, but I can never remember it. Help me out here folks ... But I was wondering if there is a surface mounted one that can bolt to my sundeck roof and can support 200-ish pounds? We are planning on moving the storage of the dinghy up there anyway and may want to invest in one. However, I'd like to avoid something too big, heavy,,, and expensive. I was thinking of fabricating one on my own with thick-wall pipe and a trailer winch.

Any links to pre-fab ones would be great.
