The original davits had been lost, but I was able to find these '50s era Wilcox/Critteneden aluminum davits at a used marine equipment store.

Propane tanks are bolted to the cockpit floor. The propane grill (overhanging transom) stows in port compartment. 12V dinghy winches await installation to transom framing.

New storage uses cockpit space more efficiently and offers comfortable seating while underway or at anchor. A new ladder replaces the basic factory ladder.
