sailingdog Also... make sure that the threaded portion is perpendicular to the hull as much as possible.

Faster Agree that carpet works best.

And, sorry if I'm stating the obvious here, but if these are typical tripod individual stands with jack screws, make sure that you have them securely chained together so that any lateral forces due to hull shape don't just push them aside.

Dropping the boat could well ruin your day....

sailaway21 Thanks fast. I was wondering about the trade off between the slipperyness of carpet, while jacking, and the grip of rubber when jacked. Sounds like the ability to slide over hull takes precedence.

The boatyards generally use carpet.
