Standing on sacrificial keels?

When hauling out, should my cat have any support or is it fine standing on own sacrificial keels?

We have sucessfully hauled out/dry docked our Salina 48 - Fountaine Pajot on the sacrificial keels, on a sloping ramp. Pretty strange feeling, but no problems.

why not just block the cross beams and avoid worrying about /or sacrificing your keels.

Re: Standing on sacrificial keels?

Our Tobago 35, with sacrificial keels, sits 6 months at a time on the keels. It tends to deform so that the floorboards rock on the hard, and even for a few weeks after launch. I have taken, in recent years, to installing jacks under the main bulkhead and the cockpit door bulkhead, the bows and sterns, and just taken some of the load that way. Likely helping my mind more than my boat.

I'm sure the boat had no extra support when stored before I owned it (former charterboat), and it shows no damage from it.

Re: Standing on sacrificial keels?

Don't know about the Edel specifically, hopefully an owner will chime in, but I can tell you that Lagoons, FPs, R&C's (Moorings), Wildcat, ... all sit just fine on their keels. Blocking of hulls fore and aft is important to prevent movement but not to take load.
