I am researching davits to replace the factory davits on my T-37. I have found that the Ocean Marine System davits look like they would work well and would allow the solar panels to be installed on the horizontal crossbars. They retail for about $1700. In looking for a less expensive alternative I found the Martek davits that seem like they would also work well. The Martek davits are about $1k. The concern that I have are the end fittings as they appear to be the typical set screw rail type fittings. For the application they may not be bad. The davits are $700 less than the Ocean Marine davits. Not wanting to cheap out and regret getting the Martek davits I am hoping that some of you have installed the Martek or have seen them in real life and can give an objective opinion as their design.
