Dinghy Davit Worksheet: Why is it important?
When you are ready to explore your Hurley Davit options, the first step is to fill out our Davit Worksheet. We do not keep a database of all the different vessel platforms or dinghies. There are just too many variations. From added platforms or other accessories like grills and grab bars, each setup is unique. We want to be absolutely sure the system we recommend is going to work with your specific set-up!
We do not keep measurements on file based on vessel or dinghy types . . .
The Davit Worksheet asks for a number of measurements including platform width (port to starboard), platform depth (transom out to the edge), height off the water (top of the platform down to the water), transom height (top of the platform to the top of the transom), as well as dinghy length, beam & total weight including motor. It is also important to include if there are any gunwales or other obstructions on the platform to be considered such as swim ladders and/or hatches.
If you are able to include photos of your platform/transom and dinghy, we highly encourage you to do so. Pictures help us gather the total picture of your set-up and we may find additional measurements to consider before making a recommendation. If you are looking at the H2O or either of our chock systems, it is necessary to include whether the tender is a hard bottom or soft bottom as well; the H3O and H3O+ are universal and can accommodate both hard bottom and soft bottom tenders without additional inserts.
Once you have gathered all of the information, you may submit the Davit Worksheet right from the web page or give us a call at +1 906.553.6249. We will assess your information and be back to you within 1 business day.
Our goal is a satisfied customer.
So if we see a potential issue, we will always let you know! As always, if you have any questions while filling out the Davit Worksheet, please do not hesitate to give us a hail!
