Our Bahia was hauled that way in Raiatea when we first went over to look at her. I also know a Venezia here in NZ hauled out that way. I really don't think you need to worry.

Re: Lifting/Slipping a Belize 43

Don't have actual engineering data to back this up, but in general I think articulated trailers (like you are considering), marine railways, and marine elevators are easier on a cat than lifting with a travel lift.

Re: Lifting/Slipping a Belize 43

We tried to lift our Belize out using a trailer that was 2900mm wide and was unsuccessful. The curved sections of the hulls did not allow a flat section to sit on the trailer so the lift was abandoned and we ended up using a travel lift on the Gold coast which was 33' wide.
