Nova Davit by Forespar

Lift your dinghy with maximum efficiency. "Gear and Gadgets" from our August 31, 2007, CW Reckonings


Forespar's Nora Davits are sturdy enough to support larger dinghies, and they swing out of the way when not in use.Forespar

Forespar's Nova Davit is designed to be mounted on the stern of boats that have pushpits. Construction is of stainless steel with Marelon gussets at the bend and at the outboard end. Combined, the davits can lift 350 pounds and they extend 45 inches from the stern to hoist wide dinghies. The apparatus uses Harken roller bearing blocks, so your muscle power goes into hoisting rather than overcoming friction. You can swing the davits out of the way when they're not in use, or remove them altogether.
