    I picked up a used one this past spring. Now I need to figure out how to mount the beast. It's heavy!

    Is anybody using an Electra Dyne? I'm wondering if a davit arm made from 1.5" schedule 80 aluminum tube is strong enough to hold this thing..

    I can pick up some pre-made aluminum davit mounts that already have the plastic delron inserts but they only come made for 1.5" pipe.

    1.5" sch40 with a big gusset in the crotch is strong enough to haul anything you can dream up.

    2" schedule 80 with 1/4" flat bar stuck up it's ass for rigidity. I had a couple of delrin pieces made as bearing surfaces.

    Electra Dyne can pull a load. Schedule 40 will be a twisted pile of junk.

    this my thread of the one I made. Before going to the Discovery Bay motor I looked into getting a Electra Dyne

    I built this to be able to help get a friend out of the water if he ever fell in. Found it was unpractical. even with a 1.5" schedule 80 pipe shoved up inside the 2" schedule 80 the upright would start to bow over with a 250 weight on it. so we shoved the flat bar inside to stiffen it up some more.

    Good Luck

    What will you be pulling with it? Lobster pot? It can pull 100 lbs. commercial crab pots easy. But if your pulling only lobsrter traps no need for over kill.

    Both those links show very poorly designed products, and even a sch40 1.25" davit would turtle the boat before it bent or broke. Brother, PM me if you want a pro setup that has nothing to do with these donkeys "ideas".

    Well.. for what it's worth. I called the manufacturer this afternoon. They recommended 2 inch schedule 80 aluminum pipe and 3/8's plate coming off the vertical pipe to hold the puller.

    At least that's the dimensions of the davit system they sell. If that davit system fit my boat, I would just buy it and be done with it even at 500 bucks.

    By the time I'm done building my own I'm sure I'll be well over that after hiring a welder.

    I called around today trying to find 5086 2" schedule 80. The fifth place I called had it in stock for 160 bucks for an 8-foot section.

    Every other shop I called had to special order and would only sell a 20' stick.

    After I'm done with wiring, switchgear and fuses I'll be over a G Eazy.

    Break out another G!

    Thanks for the input gentleman.

    Nothing wrong with 6061 for that, in fact it's pretty much the standard because 5086 is not readily available. Don't over think it man, you're pulling 8# traps, I pull 100# traps with my sch40 davit, no flex.

    you need 6063 if you want to bend it, 6061 will break if you bend to much. 160 bucks is way to much also. Kirk

    6061 will bend ok if it is in a t4 or less condition , and bend radius is at least 3x material diameter. unfortunately most places stock t6 from my experience.
