Full keel haul out procedures

As I look at more and more boats, I come across an increasing variety, which has let me to a couple questions.

I'd assume with haul-out of a fin keel or centerboard you'd put the straps fore and aft of the keel's location before bringing up. However, with a full keel, can the keel support the weight of the boat when lifting? Or is there a special procedure they use, such as large trailer with supports on either side of the keel?

Yes, full keel boats can take the weight of the boat on the bottom of the keel. When it is on stands, almost all of the weight should be resting on the keel, not the stands.

It is pretty much the same except that the forward sling has a greater tendency to slide forward so that fore and aft choker lines are even more critical than with other boats. In extreme cases a shorter sling is used forward so that the boat stays more level. Anyone operating a travellift or crane should know about these precautions ( I would assume)

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

There are some really amazing trailers that some yards use. the have hydraulic supports that pretty much self adjust to any hull. I would say yes full keel can support the boat.. maybe better then a fin keel can. I you look on you tube you may find some vids on boat hauling. here's one.. kinda slow but you will get the idea.

Thanks. I have zero intention of doing this myself, it's not my line of work, nor do i have a boat yard, nor do i have the facilities, I was just curious how it was done. I will certainly check out videos on youtube, I didn't even think of that.

this kind of how we do it in my Yacht Club but slower! [IMG][/IMG]... not for the faint of heart.. it's way more controlled by our people.

Ooh!!! I was afraid that was going to happen!!!!!!! It makes me cringe!

A sailboat full keel is different than that isn't it? I thought it was like a fin keel, thin as it is, but just ran the length of the boat. Wouldn't windward performance be horrible otherwise?
