Re: Boat Stands
I've had good luck using 5 Hostar stands under my 32' Ericson for about 10 years.
Essentially, 5 means there is zero room for error caused by humans or storms. That's why 7 is preferred at that LOA. Also, 7 allows for temporary removal for work as necessary, although, personally I would install 9, then remove 2.
Since we hauled just before H-Sandy, we currently have 14. (9 would be typical for us)

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
