We have been using St. Croix 350 davits for the past 6 years without any issues on our GB 36 CL. Last year we replaced our 9' 6" w/4hp dinghy, weighing approximately 150 lbs with one that is 18" longer and 75 lbs heavier, 11'2" w/20hp, and found the manual raising of the dinghy stern was exhausting and at times difficult. I mounted a winch on the davit to improve the lifting capabilities and now can raise the dinghy single handedly. See the attached photo of our installation without the winch. One word of caution relates to Atlantic Towers who now owns the rights to St. Croix davits. My experience was that they'll take your money, promise you anything, send you nothing, and will delay any refund until the credit card company applies pressure.
