Nice job blocking and putting stands on her... most people don't use that many stands for even much larger boats... I've seen boats that were 35' LOA that only had four stands... two on each side... and the keel blocks...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Great Pictures, once I figure out how to post pictures I'll show our 1980 30ft Catalina. I love this site.

Greg—

You'll need ten posts to really post photos properly... read the POST in my signature and get yourself an account at flickr.com smugmug.com or photobucket.com and then get nine more posts, say over in the song thread, and then you're set to go.

Welcome to the asylum.

I love these pics. I don't yet have any of my Bristol 34 on the hard, but I hope to soon. I'm saving up for a haulout.

Thanks. I lean toward the paranoid side of blocking the boat ever since a couple of boats were blown off their stands during tornados at our marina. Plus with this many stands I can pull one out and move the others to finish the bottom rather than hang in the slings $$$$...

How about the blocking on this 40'?


I would classify that as scary...

Interesting side note...I'll bet you didn't know before hand the trucker would put your boat on backwards. That can make a big difference when it's running down the road at 60mph in a 30k wind and you've prepped it expecting the bow to be into the wind.
