|This davit is using a manual winch,
but most users tend to buy RV trailer winches and use a small canvas cover over
them to prevent rust.

A standpipe davit actually consists of two main parts - (1) the davit itself,
and (2), the standpipe. The davit uses the standpipe for support, and is mounted
with Delrin bearings that slide down into the standpipe. The standpipe is
usually mounted through a hard top, a cabin top, or sometimes through the
foredeck. When passing through the cabin it is usually hidden within a locker,
or behind a curtain etc.
The standpipe davit is constructed of 6061T6 aluminum with an Awlgrip finish.
Standard colors offered are either Off-White or Cream. We have found that in
most cases this suits the color scheme of the majority of boats. Other Awlgrip
colors are available at an additional charge.
The thru-deck pipe is provided 7’2" long and will be cut to length. Each unit is equipped with a mounting pad
for a winch, deck collar, base plate, backing plate, wire sheave arrangement and Delrin bearing rings. Not included are a winch and cable.
The davit stands 72" above the deck, and has a reach of 72". Its safe lifting
load is 400 pounds. The cost of the complete assembly is $3600.00. Packaging for
shipment is $385.00. Freight cost varies.
