Ericson 27 Pile Drying

Hi Guys

I wanted to know if anyone has dried out an E27 on a drying Grid before?
The E27 has quite the swept back underwater profile.

My concern is it will fall forward.

The piles I want to use are simply two telephone poles on stickeing out of a concrete sea bed.

Will lashing it ot the polls be enough to stop it falling? Or are there jst some boats you cannot dry in this fashion.

Re: Ericson 27 Pile Drying

yeah it's enough. won't be pretty but it'll do so long as the bow can be tied off port n starboard. Make sure you lines and cleats are up to it.
