To get back to the stands themselves...
Some have suggested the good idea of putting pads underneath the feet, to help them avoid sinking into the ground. If they sink or heave with a frost...oops. Our yard does this with their stands even on a paved surface. Another important safety feature is to chain the pairs of stands together so they can't slip out and have the boat fall over that way.
