Searider on davits?

Looking to possibly keep my 4m searider on davits on our potential new home...

Anyone any experience of doing this? Did it work OK? What sort of deck fittings and lifting strop did you use?

if its a commercial spec they should be built in, shouldn't hurt the Hull if factory installed

Unfortunately there are no eyes installed which is why I was wondering if it was sensible to do - are the commercial spec ones reinforced or heavier built?

I fit this type of lifting arraignment on a regular basis. Usually comprises of two 10mm u bolts through the transom about 3 off the deck the two further 10mm u-bolts up forward through the fist chine as it raises up through the deck.
If this is not possible because it will cause the engine to fowl on the davits then we use a two point lifting system that is made up of two hefty plates fitted through the hull with 12mm stainless bar that comes up through the deck with eyelets fitted to the end for the lifting points. This is a cusom fit job and can be expensive.

It does indeed it weighs around 160kg and the engine around 100kg if its 50hp ish 4 10mm U-Bolts will be more that adequate. We lift boats of over 2 ton on the same lifting points. Although I have o say not on davits behind a Moody 36.
