Haul Out Grand Banks 42 Classic

Postby Aitchy » Tue Feb 26, 2019 4:59 am

Hi, I'm new here. I am very excited to have purchased a very original 42 Classic from Sydney, Australia (Build #396). I'm shipping to New Zealand and I can't find anywhere the position the strops should be placed relative to the COG to lift my GB onto the transport freighter. Can anyone assist?

Place the straps at the forward and aft bulkheads to the engine room.
Good luck,

great info, I have been worried about them picking up my dried out hull. I saw a post where I guy had his wood hull crushed on one side from the straps. My PO said to make sure they use the cushions?

I have never seen "cushions" being used nor think they would serve for anything.

Side forces from the sling would not be large and the bulkhead area would be very solid.

Perhaps the use of cushions means blocks or pads. The rub rail and lower spray rail can roll slightly on a woody as the slings are tightening and takes up the slack and break away. On a fiberglass GB, these are integrated and part of the laid up hull. On a woody, these are bolted on and may shift or break away. I always have the yard use carpet wrapped wood blocks or "sling pads" immediately below these rails to keep the slings from causing any damage.
