Houseboat Dinghy Davits?
Looks like a great davit system for houseboats.
I would like to transport our dinghy behind our houseboat, and on the attached photo, I saw this particular method of putting a dinghy on the back of the house boat that looked very good. Does anybody know where they might have bought them?
I guess the dinghy would be stable for cruising and docking, yet be easy enough to lower into the water. I preferably don't want to take the outboard on/off since the motor weighs @ 80lbs and it's not easy.
I have seen those davits that look like two inverted "L" arms protruding off the back of the stern, but on our houseboat the stern has been extended and I don't think we could easily mount them without a major installation.
We love our dinghy, but it's always a hassle towing it.
Any suggestions are welcomed.

Well Mike, welcome to the forums, and glad that you showed us that interesting looking dinghy davit. I don't actually know where it comes from, but it looks like it would be easy to make (duplicate) if someone is handy with some tools.Lastly
