ARMSTRONG – LONG DAVIT
*Locate the davit in the boat from stern to midway forward.
*Locate the deck and gunnel mounts so the davit will slip vertically through the gunnel mount into the deck mount. NOTE: The gunnel and deck mounts for a schedule 40 davit must be mounted at least 21” apart. For schedule 80 davit 12”. For extened davits, 24”. Through bolting the mounts is recommended using four 1/4” or 5/16” bolts per mount. We also recommend using Sikaflex bedding compound. You may also install an additional backing plate for reinforcement and added support.
*Install the davit into the gunnel and deck mounts and position the davit with arm extended out in operating position.
*Hold davit in operating position and locate pre-drilled holes in the gunnel mount. Drill a 3/8” hole through one side of the davit pipe. Install davit locking pin through the hole approximately 3/4”.
*Drill 3/8” hole on opposite side of davit pipe through the pre-drilled hole in gunnel mount, taking care to drill no more than 1” deep.
*Remove davit locking pin from other hole in gunnel mount.
*Drill through complete gunnel mount. (Only one hole may be drilled through the davit at the gunnel mount.)
*Install removable locking pin through the gunnel mount and pipe. This holds the davit in the operating position.
*Remove locking pin from gunnel mount and rotate davit 90 to 180 degrees.
*Locate pre-drilled holes in the deck mount.
*Drill a 3/8” hole through one side of the davit pipe through the pre-drilled hole in deck mount.
*Install davit locking pin through the hole approximately 3/4”.
*Drill 3/8” hole on opposite side of the davit pipe through the pre-drilled hole in the deck mount taking care to drill no more than 1” deep.
*Remove locking pin from other hole in deck mount.
*Drill through complete deck mount.
*Install removable locking pin through deck mount and davit pipe. This positions the davit inside the boat for storage.
