I have St Croix Model 350 removable dinghy davits to hoist my dinghy up from the water to my swim platform as I detailed in this 2018 post: http://www.clubsearay.com/index.php?threads/420-da-thread.1273/page-75#post-1013007 As my wife and I were hoisting the dinghy up on Sunday, the rear of the dinghy suddenly gave way and splashed down into the water. Luckily nobody was hurt and the dinghy was not damaged - but the failure occurred on the piece I circled below which I later learned is called an "Stainless Steel Stamped Shackle". I was able to purchase a new one at West Marine - but I am now aware of how this is a single point of failure - I am surprised the St Croix wouldn't have designed a little bit beefier part here. Now that I am more aware of this - I am looking to add in a second line of redundancy in case the D Shackle fails again. I was considering two possibilities: 1) Use "Stainless Steel Seizing Wire" to make multiple wraps from the U/V shaped piece coming off of the bottom of the pulley around the O ring attached to the other end of the eye jaw toggle. 2) Use a "Stainless Steel Cable Tie" following the same route (the problem is that the ring is rotated the other way). 3) Something else I'm not thinking of?? - CSR guru's any suggestions?
