New Quik Davit™ System

Published: Sunday, August 17, 2014



clientuploads/news/August 2014/QuickDavit1.JPGRancho Santa Margarita, CA -Forespar's new Quik Davit kit offers power boaters a compact and easy-to-install dinghy storage option. A hinged type davit system, Quik Davit quickly connects the dinghy to the back edge of almost any swim platform, allowing it to be tipped up and out of the water for easy storage without towing.

The two piece QUIK Davit™ Kit includes two quick release snap davit heads and twodinghy pads that are permanently adhered to one side of almost any inflatable dinghy.  Once installed, the user simply snaps the pieces together to create a hinge that allows the dinghy to be pulled up onto the swim platform. Quik Davit also creates a safer and more stable dinghy entry and exit point at a comfortable height above the water.  To release the dinghy you simply push it into the water and pull back the spring loaded easy grip release handles to unlock the connection.  

Made for the harsh marine environment, Quik Davit is manufactured using solid stainless steel and UV resistant composites. Used with the optional Fast Kit™ mounting plates, both the snap davit heads and the metal yoke portion of the dinghy pads can be quickly removed to eliminate any tripping hazard. The dinghy pads also create convenient dinghy handles when the yokes are removed and are mounted using Forespar's exclusive inflatable adhesive that work equally well on Hypalon or PVC boats. Fully compatible with most Weaver davit system heads & dinghy pads, Quik Davit can be easily retrofitted and will cover existing mounting holes from older systems. 

Designed for inflatable dinghies up to 200 lbs in total weight (79 kg) and up to 11 feet (3.3 m) in length, the complete Quik Davit kit includes two glue-on dinghy pads with removable yokes, two snap davit heads, fasteners, adhesive and instructions. 

Options include: 
- Low profile Fast Kit mounting plates for quick removal of davit heads.
- Snap davit head extensions and risers for platforms with a swim ladder or raised edges.
