Holland ahoy

My first sailboat was a Holland 7.6, loved it and still do (it's out there, somewhere). Great performance, but I don't think I'd sit it on that long thin keel for too long. We once hit a (uncharted, natch) rock, pretty hard, and flexed the hull - broke two legs off the head, but only a scratch on the keel paint.

Mine was the very first, the prototype, no hull number, and was a little different from production boats, beefier in some areas. The design was reinforced somewhere along the way...

Not to say I would ever want to do this, or suggest that others do instead of going into a good haulout facility; but it can be done in the right conditions. I'm sure it would stir up commotion over environmental concerns if you did this anywhere in California; however.

The thread is about doing complete bottom jobs while careened, which tend to require a little more prep work than just simply "scrubbing a painted bottom".

KeelHaulin So scrubbing a painted bottom while the boat is afloat is somehow more environmentally friendly than scrubbing it while the tide is out? I don't think you are going to get out the sander and strip the bottom while a boat is careened; maybe on a tide grid (but that's why tide grids are disappearing).

SVAuspicious Walt is on the right track.

If you want legs, the only commercially available ones I know of are Yacht Cradles - Yacht Legs - Boat Stands - For Sale - The Yacht Leg & Cradle Company . In many areas of substantial tides there are seawalls or docks you can tie up to at high tide that dry out at low tide.

Careening per se means anchoring or otherwise tying up the boat so it settles on its side when the tide goes out. That works best where there is an area of soft bottom where the bottom is relatively flat and dries at low tide.

It all works, recognizing the quite appropriate comments above about environmental impact.
