    I just bought the 390DA and looking for some advise from anyone with the same boat. It has an integrated swim platform and I am looking to put an AB Mares 10 VSX (10.6 length and 5.7 Bean weighing 400LBS to 450LBS depending on motor) or similar dink on the transom as well as be able to put a Sea Doo Spark that weights 438LBS. I have been looking at the Hurley H30+ electric mentioned in other threads here. Here are the questions. 1. Will it fit with room to get on board? 2. With the Transom rear wall is there room to swing it down into position? 3. Is the height of the swim platform to the water going to be an issue? 4. Will is cause any issues with the handling of the boat and getting her to plain? Thanks for any advice you can share.

    at 10'6 length and your narrower beam than mine, I would think you will have little if any room on your platform.

    I have a 9'6" dinghy, and 14'6" beam, we have just over 2' between the pontoon and the port inner transom wall (with bow facing starboard).

    I think you can swing it in, but just think the fit will be tight. You really down want the bow sticking out beyond the gunnel at the aft corner.

    As for the H30 being the right lift I can say for 100% certainty I like mine and would only trade it for a hydraulic platform!
