Re: To drydock or not?
These 'hydro hoists' have been used for sailboats as shown below... even if you can't lift a fin keel all the way out, it makes for easy scrubbing of just that part of the keel and keeps the rest of the boat clean..
Marina would have to allow this, of course, and there's the original purchase too.
