The SS bracing is from old salvaged stanchions. We cut them to fit. This saved us some coin as we were overrun as it was from welding costs. We will remove them next summer and have them buffed and we will polish them. They do have a few gouges but again this is not a YC boat and the gouges are not all that noticeable.
Red line indicates what was welded onto the Kato Marine Island Davit and stern mount.
We welded one foot to the bottom of the Kato Marine Island Davit davits. But we had cut 6" off previously to originally mount them so it is really 6" you would need to add to the length. Also we welded a support from that bottom stretch to the exisiting outside support. The curved section.
We did not need to add a lot of SS tubing and we did not need to muck up the view or clutter up the stern rail. There is enough of that with bimini solar supports and Air Breeze wind generator support SS tubing :)
