    You do have 20+ inches above the water line. I have a Hurley system on mine and it takes two to comfortably load our Zodiac 310 and 15HP 2 stroke. Given the beam on our boats is only 14' there is not a lot of swim platform left once dinghy is loaded. We do "slide" the dinghy to starboard to swim in the lake etc if we don't want to fully unload it and still be able to use the swim ladder. And you can squeeze between the transom and dindghy when it is loaded to fuel the boat etc.
    PM me and I can email you some pics if you like.

    The beam is 14 ft but I believe the swim platform is 12 ft, and its 20+ inches off the water.
    4Shrecks, as I said in my email, I had the HD extended, not the XL.

    A buddy of mine has the Nautley system and he uses a ratchet strap connected to a D-ring and the dinghy to help him load his dinghy by himself as he has a dinghy about 11 1/2 feet long with a 25 HP Mercury (very fast dinghy...that guy wins all our dinghy races!)

    Can you post some details on the dinghy, is it a center console?

    Just an option, Freedom Lift. Just went through a lengthy evalution of many lifts on the market with a friend and we went with Freedom Lift for his 55 Neptunus. Really great product.

    Just bought the Nautley HD+ from someone on here (second hand). I had to purchase the Weaver quick kit separately.
    I have it all now.
    Time for installation on my 2005 320!

    Any tips?
