fully extended jackstands

I've got a line on a set of used jackstands, but I would have to fully extend them to make them work.

Is it advisable to only leave a little in the tube?

I'm hoping to leave the yard this year and put the boat next to the garage.

I would speak to someone like Brownell Boat Stands

I dont know what would be a safe amount of rod left in the tube BUT to little and the top of the tube could fold and they DO NOT page says

DO NOT PLACE BLOCKS ON TOP OF BOAT STANDS OR UNDERNEATH LEGS OF BOAT STANDS TO INCREASE THEIR REACH

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Good idea. I had that thought, but felt as though their suggestions might have a bias.

I'm pretty sure it's a bad idea. I just like paying ~40% of retail!

Anyone got some tall jackstands their looking to unload in the NE?

New stands are pretty reasonably priced on the Hostar website.They are up in Mass. As far as extending them all the way up, I've never had a problem in doing so but would be careful about it on soft ground where they could shift the load out of column.
