Dinghy snap davits

 Hi all

I'm looking to get a snap davit system installed on my marlin board and new dinghy. These are what you see on a lot of boats so the inflatable dinghy can be clipped on one side and then just lifted on the other side so it's sitting on the edge of the marlin board. I have found where to buy them but want someone to fit everything too. I could probably fumble my way through but if I stuff it up I'd kick myself hard!

Does anyone have suggestions of who might be able to fit these? The supplier doesn't and neither does the Hillary Boat yard who have shipwrights. I'm at a loss and want to get it done when the boat comes out for service in 2 weeks. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

 i ve used halyard snapswivels before - u can then also tow on it, but use a secondary safety rope

the design allows u to pull the pin even with a lil bit of load still on it
