Re: Help...Relocating stands

Yes, the port stand is chained to the starboard stand.
Just a little nervous moving them, how much pressure I should put on them when relocated, etc...
I have started applying a barrier application and then I need two coats of bottom paint so putting her in the sling for a day or two will not work. My thought is to complete the barrier coats, then relocate all the stands, and then sand & barrier coat in those spots. Finally apply the bottom paint, put her in the sling and then hit the areas where the stands were located...

So if get one additional set of stands, set them up right next to the current ones, relocate the chained stands and then remove the temp stands, and then move on to the other set... is that a safe plan?
