I imagine. In theory it is the same as on my SF Pelican but 580 lbs heavier... Once I get the trailer up to my house on Saturday I'll look at it. I figure there is at least some chance that I could get the rack it sits on out of the way and simply raise the trailer up and away from it.

I admit I'm shy about supporting the weight of the hull on anything other than trailer bunks or the sling hoist as I see elsewhere. I did happen onto one web site where the owner floated the boat off the keel leaving it sitting in a 4x4 rack on the trailer. That seems iffy to me for some reason though.

Thanks for the replies so far.
