Regarding discussion about a dingy here are a few observations from our recent experience:
While we did have the upper deck railing hinged to open and provide additional clearance we did not require it.
We had a custom built Jack Johnson davit installed in San Diego. Our design included the arm being two pieces with a pin. The reason was that I didnít think I would like the look of the davit but after installation it looked great. Low profile design helped keep the height to a minimum.
We used portable deck clocks (foam filled with a fabric cover) that worked great. We spent a lot of time on the deck and didnít want permanent mounted chocks on this boat. While we were concerned about these loose chocks moving around with the boat everything worked fine. We simply secured the boat to railing with light rope and it never moved even in some rough seas. Best decision ever made regarding chocks.
