Math,

If the boat yard is using slings to haul out and back in. Make sure they use some kind of padding between that new paint job and the slings. Some yards use cardboard some wrap the slings in plastic. In my case they used card board in my recent haul out and the paint was not damaged. Most bottom paints will still be curing when the boat is dropped into the water. I'm not sure where you are from but if the boat will be put back into the water soon after painting, make sure you tell you bottom cleaning divers that you have new paint. They will need to hold off on cleaning the bottom for a couple of months and then switch to a less aggressive cleaning pad when they do start cleaning again.
