My davits and motor mount came in today. I want to share this incase anyone has a similar need as me as I have seen little info on this type setup.
I have the small 3 person west marine dinghy with wood slat floor and a Mercury 3.5HP 4stroke with integrated fuel tank. I purchased the dinghy/motor used so I have very little money tied up in them. I wanted a davit system where I could have full use of my swim platform while the dinghy is stowed and I also wanted to be able to leave the motor mounted on the dinghy. Well most of the systems I found were expensive and/or didn't meet my needs of full use of swim platform. I couldn't see spending way more on a davit system then I spent on my dinghy.
What I finally ended up with are the quick release hauler davits (model 6100) and a swivel motor mount (model 3000) from a Canadian company.
