    Default I need some measurements from you guys !!

    I'm working on a new 3 piece davit for the coming season and i need the measurement from your deck to the top of your gunnels/washrails preferably at the back of the house. Trying to get a average height so i know where to mount the Electra Dyne's. Tough job trying to come up with a generic mount/height. AKmud from the forums here is doing all the welding.

    Steve. Here is a picture of mine on my Hewes Alaskan 260.



    Measurements from the floor to:
    Top of the first shelf is 11"
    Bottom of the gunnel is 25"
    Bottom of the rounded top edge is 30"
    Top of the gunnel is 31 1/2"
    Floor to the top edge of the cabin roof is 75 1/4" so the davit would swing over the top.

    Hope this helps ya out. I've been wanting to change up my davit for a while now, so I'm really interested in seeing how you work this up. I can't put on a full camper back on mine due to my davit design so it's time for a change.
    Let me know if you want to check it out in person sometime. See ya at the show.

    I'm thinking its 28-32" on most boats.
