lifting a boat with davits

I will be in a salt water area that only has davits available. How do you lift a 237 Sundeck? I only see a tow hook in the frt of boat.

    I have a 2012 SD237 with an I/O.  It has an eye bolt in the bow and two eye bolts in the transom, I attach my transom tie-downs on my trailer to them.  The transom eye bolts are located just under the swim platform (if you have that option on your boat).  There is a molded in gap (about an inch or so) in the swim platform that allows access to the eye bolts from above the platform, more than likely for lifting purposes.
