Re: Carrying Tender on Davits while crossing

That is an ingenious modification to the Simpson Davits. However, I noticed that the outboard motor is actually "inboard." Can you tell me the model and HP of this motor? Also, I assume that to raise the dinghy and outboard on the davits, you first have to reverse the outboard on the dinghy transom?

Hi Mohammad, I have the CL 340 in Hypalon and it's in good shape after 4 seasons in the Med. The French dealer in La Rochelle convinced me that Hypalon is the way to go for the Med/Caribbean. I have the Amel provided davits on the 55 but I have some custom brackets which fixate the dinghy very well - no sliding or other movement whatsoever. see pics. For passages, I put on a cover to prevent a wave from filling the dinghy and I've not had any problems. For offshore passages with a chance of serious gales, like a Transatlantic West to East, however, I would put the dinghy on the aft deck and the engine in the aft locker. For one, I don't think I could deploy a drogue with the dinghy hanging from the davits.
