Hauling SM with Lifting Plates
I am planning to get hauled out with a mobile crane using the Amel lifting plates. The Amel instruction book recommends a minimum of 6m straps and an extra shackle for the straps on the side away from the crane to avoid the triadic stay. I plan to use 20m steel straps so the crane hook is way over the triadic stay and the boat can be lifted evenly. Has anybody had experience using this method?
