Re: Simpson Davits Maintenance
In 2018 I tried to order 2 new remotes for the electric Davits; after many Emails with no reply I called COONEY UK and they quoted something like GBP300 or GBP350 per unit plus shipping but didn’t want to deal directly with retail. My NEW CALEDONIA marine contact tried to order and didn’t get any response either.
I gave up and just use the controls on the Davits.

Same thing Cooney asked for 7000€ for new manual Davits since they pretended it could not be upgraded to Dyneema.
So I asked the local yard to do the Dyneema upgrade two years ago for around 200€. Unfortunately I wasn’t there to see how they did it.
In fact it has worked quite well.
I learned it was better to leave the lines down with the weights in the middle when tender in use in the water. Quicker and easier to lift back up.
I am still looking for shop manual that would describe the inside and procedures.
Thank s again for your help.
