Well, Oh Joy is finally feet dry.

We went to push her over with the dinghy but the motor died so we ended up sailing her over and into the haulout slip. Here's a vid of the haulout, kinda cool. This is the first time I've seen her out of the water.

Charlie,
YouTube is telling us that the video is no longer available. Looking forward to seeing it.

Very interesting video. When my sailboat was hauled out last, the stern strap was placed under the keel and not behind the rudder as in yours. Does it matter from a stress and strain point of view on the hull? What is the recommended practice for placement of the lifting straps?

The last time Oh Joy was hauled was with the stern strap on the keel as well. These guys seemed to think there was no issue with the strap placement and seeing as there was no sag or creaking, I might agree with them. They tied the straps to prevent sliding and it worked out fine.

Charlie, I think the fact that there was no sag or creaking, was more due to the soundness and quality of your boat. Rather than the skill of the lift operator.
I may be wrong, (and I'm sure to be corrected if I am), but I would always have a strap under the keel. Especially for a woodie.
Make sure that they block her correctly.

They did a nice job of blocking her and setting the stands.

My wife makes me strap my woodie. Keeps the neighbors from staring
