That sucks! I hate cradles. Yeah you couldn't get away with that on a cradle, lol. Funny thing is, the boss will often be wellll aware of it if you supply beer. I always was. If I knew the owner didn't use the beer to try and take advantage, he'd get a big plus in my books, and I'd certainly let a few things that might make his life easier slide.It used to be that way here too, but these days all boats are on cradles rather than individual stands. There a few loose stands around but they are seldom available, so the travel lift is usually required.
It definitely pays to maintain good relations with the yard crews but there is only so much they can do without the boss noticing!
I do try to splash around lunch time, and they will leave the boat in the slings while they go for lunch, and they will usually take a long lunch!
