Re: [Amel] Re: Davits and dinghy specification


I do not think it is a good idea unless it is for a short distance such as in the islands or in the Med between ports with reliable forecasts. As an example last week around Cape Finisterre after a calm crossing of the Biscay within minutes the wind was up to 35 knots.Iwas very glad the dinghy was secured on deck. It fits perfectly over the aft cabin behind the mizzen mast and creates no interference with opening the aft head hatch.
Franck who owns Secteur Blanc is a very good guy. He will give you good advice.
You can get his number from Antoine at Amel.
All the best

thank you for your quick response. I will get in touch with Franck.

Do you think it is not appropriate to leave the dinghy on the davits on passages?

Best regards,
