    Default Who's Kingfisher with the Crane Davit?

    Anyone know the owner or how the crane/davit is connected thru the roof in the picture? I would like to mimic the crane/davit on my kingfisher but that's were the head is so I wondering how it is supported.

    Thanks Ryan

    The support goes down into the bathroom, I would guess it's bolted to the wall with a big bracket. Not my boat but I have one and considered a crane, bought a lighter raft instead.

    I'd bet its just a bracket or flat stock that was welded or bolted to the roof with a piece of pipe welded to it to make the swivel in other words a pipe in a pipe.. That corner location should be plenty strong for lifting a dingy and hauling pots.

    Its a pipe in a pipe, goes through the roof into the head to a bracket bolted to the side rail of the boat. Its pretty "beefy" but works great!
