Subject: Guillemot (M31 #107) has SS Davits
In reply to: scott aumuller 's message, "swim platform" on - Monday - 02/ 8/10 - 11:55pm

I installed a small swim platform on my Catalina and it got plenty of good use... It was only about an inch or two above the waterline while at rest and included a small stainless ladder for boarding. The high stern of the Mariner would not allow you to locate it that low and unless you rely on a boarding ladder elswhere on the boat (Guillemot has a mahagony side mounted boarding ladder), you'll have a tough time to get out of the water.

I will attempt a picture...

[> [> Promise had a swim step when I bought her -- John Bye, - Tuesday - 02/ 9/10 - 2:43pm

It consisted of two U shaped tubular stainless arms bolted on to the transom. The step was a slotted teak affair that was about 30 inches wide by 12 inches deep screwed to the bottom of the U pieces. I think it was a commonly available item. It was handy but I removed it due to the extra slip cost and it took away from the 'classic' look. I have pics but don't know how to post them.

I no longer have the boat but still lurk around at this web site...

thanks for the picture of #107. This gives me some ideas for setting my davits on Greywolf (M31, #42)I don't find it on the owner's page.
Where is this boat? That looks like a north west beach in the background.
