When I stored my 7000 lb boat on a cradle with 4 pads, I routinely used one stand on the centerline (near bow or stern) to permit backing off the nearby two pads for sanding and painting. After my work under each cradle pad, I would screw it back to within a fraction of inch of the hull just in case until the bottom paint dried. Never had a problem.
