Re: How Can I Lift My 21-Foot Sailboat Off Its Trailer?

A Venture 21 only displaces 1200 pounds. Rigging up some sort of frame and lifting it with a come-a-long should be easy enough, if you know what you're doing; and there's the rub. If you have to ask, you probably don't know how to rig such a set-up. In your case it is probably best to find a friend (e.g., a mechanical engineer, or some-such) who can help you in person. Following someone's instructions over the InterNet is bound to get you into trouble (as in CRUSHED) in an endeavor like this.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
