Key Dimensions to Determine Davit Mount Size
A = Swim platforms internal width
B = Platforms depth (transom to edge)
C = Distance from top of platform to the water
D = Beam of dinghy
To determine which mount system will work best for you, measure the beam of your dinghy, divide by 2 and add 4 inches. Now measure your platform (transom to the end).
You must add a number below to your platform length figure in order to determine which mount to use.
Example: If your dinghy width is 60″ then divide by 2 + 4″ = 34″. Swim platform is 32″. By adding 2″ to the platform this would make it equal to the dinghy width of 34″ so then you would have chosen the 6″ mount.
- 0″- 2″ for the 6″ Mount
- 2″- 4″ for the 8″ Xtensions
- 4″- 6″ for the 10″ Xtensions
- 6″+ for the 36″ Xtensions
Hint: 4 inches of the mount must be used to secure to the platform.
