Good Day All,

I know this topic comes up every so often and I did see some previous threads a year or two old with not much response. So I figured I'd' try again.

I am going to put Davits on the boat and I'm fairly certain I'm going with a RIB, but the question is how big can you go without too much dingy poking out the sides. I'm not sure if 8' 6" is too small and 9' 6" is just right or if I should consider 10' 2" whereas I think 10' 6" is definitely too big.

I appreciate the feedback. I hope to hear from you all soon as I may go ahead and purchase the RIB at the Miami show if possible. Thanks.

I have a 10 ft RIB on my davits. It's Ok, but you do have to be careful when maneuvering around docks with pilings.

I have 10' that I put on the davits. It doesn't bother me.

Here is a dinghy in davits that's just under 12' LOA along side a dock. Note the majority of the weight is on the starboard purchase and that a halyard is supporting it. The port side has very little load. With this configuration, it would not be possible to move parallel along side a set of piling on the port side as the bow of the dinghy projects beyond the beam of the boat. Another consideration is when under sail, the boat will heel and any projection would hit the quarter wave. We visited a couple clubs over 4 days on this recent trip and motored rather than deflate the dinghy and stow aboard.

I have a 9'6" AB rib and it sticks out the sides a bit so have to be carefull depending on the situation.
