Angled Bases for Davits

Northern Star Boat Works was installing a set of dinghy davits on a customers sailboat. The sailboat manufacturer was able to supply factory bases for the davits, but they were only a shell and were flat on the bottom. Because they were flat and the deck has a camber they needed to be machined to match the camber of the deck.

After measuring the camber of the deck, we milled the bases at the appropriate angle to match the deck.

Once we done milling them to shape we filled them with fiberglass matt and resin, then milled the resin to match the angle previously milled into the base.

They fit perfectly when mounted. All they need at this point is a coat of paint and bit of caulking.
