Subject: Hoisting boat out by keel boats
Info: (1053 views) Posted: Friday 10-7-16 08:06:22 AM
We just rigged lines on heavy clipping shackles that run from sling all the way back to the spinnaker sheet blocks all the way aft - takes a little adjustment to get the length just right but then works fine.

:: :: forward 2/3 to keep the crew on board :)
:: ::
:: :: I was wondering what people are doing for lifting the

:: :: hole in the top of the cabin is slightly aft to balance
:: :: the boat with straps to the toe rails.
:: ::
:: :: Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

:: Don,
::
:: We have installed U-Bolt type jib sheet fairleads in
:: front of the primary winches that we use for the
:: balancing strops on Shenanigans. Others have fashioned
:: straps or loops that fit over the cabin top winches. I
:: suspect you will have other ideas posted shortly!
