Haul out

I’m hauling my tartan 3700 and wonder if it can rest on the keel for a few days. The boat will come up on the wats with know stands. Thxs

I'm not sure what this sentence means. what is "wats" and what are "know stands"?

Re: Haul out

The boat will come up on the ways with no stands.

Re: Haul out

If you were to haul the boat in a yard with proper stands it would still be sitting on it's keel; the stands are there to keep it upright, they do not take much of the weight.

Yes, it can rest on its keel.

Re: Haul out

Isn't there going to be on some sort of cradle or something to come out on a slipway? Wouldn't that have side supports? Stands are not to support the weight of the boat anyway, only to keep it from falling over. All our boats rest on their keels, if the have them. A properly built keel boat can do that for years.

Re: Haul out

As I was doing some house cleaning it occurred to me that perhaps some further advice is necessary. The keel will support the boat but if you intend to leave it for a few days you should have something to keep it balanced for and aft; it may tip onto it's nose or bum.

Re: Haul out

The reason I'm inquiring is that the boats manual claims that the boat should be supported 65% keel and 35% stands. My sense is that the reason they raise this issue is that they do not want all of the boats weight fully supported by stands. I've tried to reach Tartan with no luck. The ways that the boat will come up on is a rail system and does not provide any support other than to stop the boat from falling forward or to the sides. The boat will rest on the leading edge of the keel which is a beaver tail. The last haulout was done by slings and the boat was put down on the keel and stands as above. The keel and hull joint appear to be strong enough to suppor the weight however because of the manuals comments I'm wondering....Maybe I'm just being overly paranoid.

Re: Haul out

Some rail carriages have crossbeams too far apart to be much good to catch a short little keel. Maybe end up with one point contact and vessel on it's nose or butt. Used to run a larger commercial ways and the little boats were always tricky
