BOAT DAVITS

Boat Davits

Problem: These devices, for raising and lowering small boats, are plagued with corrosion and brake problems.  A number of commercially available products could improve the davits.

Solution: MTTC and NWSC/CD/Philadelphia have teamed to investigate the myriad of new coatings, brake shoes and other materials and to test them for suitability.

Benefits

Estimated Navy Cost Avoidance:

Minimum annual:       $1,950 K

Minimum 15 Year:   $19,500 K

 

Fleet Impact: Fleet representatives recently identified Boat Davits as one of their top four maintenance problems. These legacy systems have been largely ignored for years even though the ships must keep them fully operational.

 

Status: Complete

 

New brake lining materials have been identified and 

evaluated. Davit drawings are being updated to include new corrosion resistant materials in those areas that have been identified as problems NSWC/Philadelphia also performed work on the new COTS davits to eliminate emerging corrosion problems. A major improvement to the clutch will not only eliminate leakage but also a PMS requirement.

Applications:

Surface combatants such as FFG-7, DD-963 and CG-47 classes.
