Looking at the St Croix 488 rotating davit for mounting one on the gunnel for lifting a dingy onto the roof. Iíve found a set of 2 for sale and would use 1.

What does everyone think? Would it work?

Those look like there made for the stern. Doesn't look like they would rotate far enough to put the dingy on the roof.

If you type "garhauer" in the search box at the top of the page, you will find loads of information in various threads.

Bob,

What did you come up with regarding optimum height for your davit? Iím trying to put 2 Hobie revo 13ís on the roof of my 26í venture and then a 9í dinghy on top of those.

I used to own a 13 Revolution, and my current inflatable is a 9.5' air floor with 15" tubes. On our C Dory 25, we added 12" to the base tube. That was enough to get the boat just to the cabin top level--and then slide it up onto the top, with minimal weight on the cabin. I had been thinking about putting the spreader bar lower, and at the point of balance. (it is about 3" off, utilizing the D rings which were already in the boat.

Also we don't know if you are going to use a rack, or just some padding under the kayak directly on the roof structure.

I advise adding 24" for most boats. The problem is I don't know how "tall" Garhauer will make the lower support tube. I also don't know what point you will use to attach the Rev. to the spreader bar.

If Garhauer will allow 30", that is where I would be just eyeballing what is necessary.

Let us know how it works out.
