Bottom paint around cradle/trailer support pads.

Ok, this may be a very obvious or just something that varies from boat to boat. But what are some of the options when removing and adding bottom cote to the area covered by the pads the balance the boat on its cradle/trailer.

First, take all the jackstands off the leeward side. Then, run like hell.

Kidding of course. You should easily be able to move and reposition the stands ONE AT A TIME to scrape/sand/paint as needed.

The weight of the boat is on the keel. Hopefully.

If the boat is on a trailer or cradle as you allude, then your best option is that the next time you pull the boat out of the water (trailer option) is to leave the boat a little further aft on the trailer thereby exposing the areas you didn't cover the last time. If the boat is on a cradle then I imagine that a travellift put it there. Again just have the operator position the boat slightly different the next time.

thanks guys,

I just purchased the boat over the winter so it is on its trailer. I will see if I can lower one support at a time. If I canít I will do the other option about placing the boat differently next year. If all ells fails I will try removing them all. I can run quit fast. hahah

good question actually...

Good question because it was the same one I had! Mine is on trailer right now and before it goes in for the season I wanted (actually need to (does anyone ever WANT to paint??))to paint it. I'm thinking of somehow using my car jack and some padded boards and get each corner up one at a time to just fit the roller through. I'm a fast runner, too!

What I'm doing: Reserve a little bit of bottom paint in a small jar and a disposable brush. Ask the yard -- once it hoists the boat out of its cradle -- to dab it on the four spots covered by the pads before they lower your boat into the water. Okay, it won't allow proper drying time, but some protection is better than none, and we're only talking about maybe 1% of the bottom surface area.

See if you can find a jackstand to borrow. You can then brace a little forward or behind each pad and then lower that pad to do the work.
