    I purchased the pivoting dinghy davits several years ago for my inflatable. They were easy to install simple to use and accomplished my goal of having the dinghy on the stern of my sailboat ready to use at a moments notice. No more getting the dinghy out of the locker inflating and assembling it. This is a good solution to the dinghy problem.

    Purchased the pivoting dinghy davits several years ago. I have been very happy with them. They were easy to install. Simple to operate and most import the dinghy is ready to use at a moments notice.

    This is the perfect solution for me! I purchased the Quick Release Dinghy Haulers, and they are exactly what I wanted! I use them to carry a small inflatable, which will now fit securely and entirely within the confines of my scoop swim step. The Dinghy Haulers attach quickly and easily when I need them, and are small and easy to store when I don’t. The quick release brackets are hardly noticeable when the c-rings are not in use. They are everything that I wanted; simple, well made, high quality fit and finish, great price, and fast and thorough customer service. Shipping to my location was prompt and domestic.

      Thanks, Dave! so happy it worked out for you. I think this might be the first mounting of these on a sailboat.
