Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Hauling SM with Lifting Plates

Ian Park

Had my Santorin lifted by deck plates. They just moved the hooks up a couple of links on one side to tilt the boat slightly to avoid the triatic. Worked a treat. Yes crane hook needs to be well clear of triatic too.

Hi all,

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?
