Spirit 28 Van de stad Haul out

Hi Everyone,

This may seem to be a silly question...

Please keep in mind this is my first yacht as i upgraded from power boats and sailing hoby`s and laser`s.

Can a spirit 28 be left standing on her fin keel in a slip without causing damage to the boats structure?

I need to replace rotten wood around my outboard well and glass/ epoxy.

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, sneider.

Yes, supported by jack stands or slip wall/piling. She is meant to rest on her keel.

Gordmay, Thanks for the welcome and your reply.

Im always cautious when uncertain.

Will be tying her to the slip wall and do the work during low tide this coming weekend....
