Hi, having a look at the weaver stand off arms, expensive for what they are.. are there alternative methods of keeping the tender upright on the davits whilst underway to allow good access to the swim platform without spending silly money? thanks Gary

Just dig deep for those, they are the best for the job and to be honest when you need to get on the platform the snap davit's allow you to drop the dinghy in v quickly so no real incovenience.
Anyway what did you expect for a boat part price....good value????

Hi Gary, how long do they need to be?
I have a pair of weaver stand off arms taken from the rear of our boat, they're not long enough for our new dinghy because we want to attach to the hull (mini rib), I might be persuaded to sell them should the measurements be ok.
I don't know if weaver use standard sizes but let me know the approx length and I will measure them for you.Living the Champagne lifestyle on Beer Money

I think the arms are around 300mm (12 inch), you need to hold the dinghy in position and measure the distance from the eyelet pads back to the transom.
We have them at home so I will get them down from the loft for a picture if they sound suitable.
We need a set of around 600mm (24 inches) if anyone else has a set, of course as it's Gary's post so he gets first refusal to any offered.Living the Champagne lifestyle on Beer Money

We decided that we didn't and so rather than buying the arms we tie the upper side of the dinghy to the stern rail. If we need to walk along the platform we just slacken or untie the line.
This seemed to us to be the most flexible system - plus the cheapest!!
