Just a newbie here myself, but I bid you welcome.

(don't ask me for pictures of my boat, I don't have one... yet)

Good on ya Windy. To save yourself a real heartache, get to your boat and get some solid wood dunnage under that keel! The cinder blocks holding her in the air are not designed to take a load laying on their side. Also they probably are not rated to take that kind of load even facing right way up. If i'm too late, lets see the pictures of what she looks like from inside your house!

Thanks for the tip I was wondering about that myself. She's back on the trailer for now, but I'll use wood dunnage when I paint the hull this spring.
