Retro fitting davit lifting points

My dad is looking at a 3.5m rib as a tender but it has no lifting eyes in it. dos anyone know what go s into fitting them? i know most of avons ribs seem to have a s/s plate on the back of them and a grp tube between the deck etc. I guess my question is is it an easy job to do? or are their structural implications as well? are the ribs specificaly designed to have lifting points in place x? many thanks for any replies

I don't know but a call to barnet marine would be my first call.
We have an xs with them fitted and i guess as they supply Avon they have a pretty good idea whats involved. Could possibly supply the correct bits and bobs aswell i'd imagine.

Maybe someone else can be of more help....
