I'm looking for a reference for sling mark on a Beneteau Cyclades
I have some marks on the boat
now, but the aft sling marks in at the second last port window, which seems almost just aft of the keel
has been lifted that way many times, however the last surveyor
said the aft sling mark should be more aft near the engine
, which was done yesterday. We then I noticed a small gap appeared at the aft keel
joint, far from the keel bolts
. The keel joint looked perfect, except for a 2 inch section, which may be why the aft lifting strap needed to be closer to the aft of keel as not to get the banana effect.
I regret listening to this surveyor
, and should have used the old markings.
This surveyor now thinks the keel has issues.
I think a little gflex epoxy
would fix this up, and then continue using the old sling marks.
