Best Davits for Hand Trolling?

Postby Kbails84 » Tue Aug 28, 2018 4:50 pm

I am trying to decide if getting a larger davit would be more acceptable (like a pot puller) or to settle with a "downrigger' style davit (Lower but longer arm) I want to have one fabricated but am more interested from pros what style works best. Any input or photos would be great.

The higher davits will make for better ergonomics and give you more time to snap and unsnap spreads.
