Winter lift out for a Pageant

Post by Sean72sean » Thu Jul 12, 2018 9:36 pm

Hi,
I have just bought my first yacht a westerly Pageant no 443. I am after any advice on what to place under the keels when on the hard and also will it need any extra support under the bow or stern.
Thanks
Sean

My Centaur gets two large lumps of timber (square pile sections) running the length of the keels (thick to get s bit more clearance under the hull for anti-fouling etc), a prop at the front and one on each stern quarter. She is on a good hard standing for this.

Given they are happy to dry out naturally.

The yard will normally put the props in when setting her down from the hoist, for mine they put 1 under the bow & 1 under each rear quarter. As Willhc said, it's worth asking them to rest her on larger blocks under the keels for ease of antifouling etc.
Regards

Simon
