Lift FS Off Trailer
Ahoy! This is FS 3430 with a question. I must inspect the centerboard, which I can't do on my trailer. I have two wonderful 24" diameter healthy Oak Trees that are 30' Apart. I have two 30,000 lb rated towing straps, one to belt Oak Tree 1 and lift the bow hook of the FS. Great, now free from the fore end of the trailer.
The other strap would belt the other Oak Tree and hook to the transom "rings". Are those rings rated to lift the boat?
I have the racing lifting hardware installed on the centerboard trunk, but this seems to be set up for a single overhead hoist to weight the boat, perhaps that would not be as good as using the transom "rings"
Thougths before I make a fool fo myself.
