putting boat on jacks

The only safe use of jacks is to stabilize the vessel, not support it. The keel needs to support the weight. If you need to work on the swing keel build a cradle.
You should also consider the relative hardness of the ground. Don''t trust the jacks on any surface other than concrete, asphalt,or very stable soil.
Be careful!
