hey tad, if you have decent sized pads on the jacks ie 1 ft square then no problem. these old boats have twice the glass in them as other boats. you may get a little oil canning effect, but that won't hurt anything. is the hull id plate still in the cabin? i'm curious as to what hull # and classification she is. it will be located just aft of the bulkhead on the starboard side below the sink about a foot above the sole. is she all wood interior or have a fiberglass liner? regardless, she will be tougher and more able than her 24 foot counterparts. and probably one of the most easy to sail boats around. but check closely where the chainplates bolt to the bulkheads for wood deterioration and repair as necessary. i'm telling you man, you're gonna have a lot of fun in thay old girl, and she'll do you well.....
