Yacht legs (beaching legs) for PS37/Crealock 37

Does anyone have experience using "yacht legs" on a PS37 (Crealock 37 design), or has anyone seen them used on this boat or very similar boats?

I want a system that allows "beaching" the boat upright where haul out isn't possible (or where it's overly expensive), and to do quick work below the waterline, such as antifouling the prop (without getting sick from diving in the polluted water around my boat).

Thanks in advance for any information.

The Brits use them a lot. Search UK magazines, Practical Boat Owner and Yachting Monthly.

I have never used "yacht legs" but I have run agound on an outgoing tide and watched the keel sink in a bit into loose beach pebbles leaving the boat upright with about a foot of water around the base of the keel.And there we sat until the tide returned.There was no damage to the boat except for some missing bottom paint.

Hope this helps,

Dear Lantau,

I do not have experience but remember reading an article on the Atom Voyages web site. It is located under Articles: Improvement projects and might be of interest/help.

Please let us all know what you come up with

Thanks,

Thanks Al, Dianne, Chuck and Jay for the helpful comments. I have written to the main supplier of these legs and will let you all know what I learn. Pacific Seacraft thinks it's doable.

If anyone has seen a very similar boat (similar hull and similar size and weight) propped on these legs, please let me know. One question is where exactly to mount the legs on the hull.
