outhaul without a sling

Anybody ever had problems hauling out a Bavaria (37) supported only on the hull at 4 points. I may have no other alterntive where I live but would also hate to se the hull crack.

Can you add a centerline support forward and aft?

What kind of haul-out uses 4 points, a track system?

One could mount bunk boards between the two side points, like on a trailer.

I don't know the construction of a Bavaria but if close enough to the keelwood (hull center line) it should be strong enough to support the weight.

It is a cart on a rail track with just four posts used normally for rather flat bottomed fishing boats in Nicaragua, but I might be able to fix a centersupport somehow. Thank you all of you.

Claus

So it sounds like a typical marine railway where all the weight of the boat is taken by sitting on its own keel with the 4 posts providing support to stop it falling over only.If this is correct then any structurally sound boat should have no problem. Whereas in the US the typical cradle supports the boat with 4 or 6 pads underneath the hull,in New Zealand the typical cradle supports the boat just the same as on a marine railway as i described above with the entire weight of the boat supported on the keel,if i had any doubts about my boats ability to take that kind of load i wouldnt want to get out of the sight of land with it. Years ago we used to clean the bottom by bringing the boat up on a grid at high tide,lean it against 2 pilings as the tide went out sink the dinghy so we had a water scource,scrub and paint it and float of on the next tide all for just the cost of the paint. You may need blocking under the forefoot if it dosnt have enough keel length to stop it falling foreward but probably not.
Steve.

Hi CO
The thing is that it cannot stand on the keel while being pulled out. It only has the four pads untill I get it on land where I can support it under the keel!
Hmm
