Correction: The Great Lakes don't have crabs.

Re: lifting my O'Day 22 with a forklift?

I just saw the photo attached to this thread with a sling attached to the forklift. When my 30 was lifted, the forks were under the boat, in a fore and aft direction, with one fork on each side of the keel and were well padded and, I guess, 25 feet long. I have attached a photo from the yards web site.

Re: lifting my O'Day 22 with a forklift?

The running gear on the SeaRay was thoroughly mashed. I'm not sure the original rudders, props, shafts, and struts ever got wet. No hull damage other than a couple marks in the gelcoat. Sadly, I almost never take pictures of this stuff. Service managers pay me large sums to solve problems for them. I get to see lots of interesting stuff, but also try to make the service managers look good. No need for them to worry about me taking pics.

We have walleye and perch. I've never figured out why people voluntarily eat crabs ;-)
