I want to get my River Pilot out of the water this winter; does anyone know what size boat stands are needed?

Does anyone have a set of stands that they would be prepared to lend, sell, or hire out - within reach of Reading?

Many thanks

Martin

Martin,
Can't help with boat stands I'm afraid. I find best way is sleeper blocks to take full weight and legs to steady hull.

Small, medium and large legs are normal. Small legs usually 600mm - 900mm, which should be suitable for Pilot. You can alway sit legs on blocks if required, if a bit on short side.

Have also used logs/wedges only at midships, as need proper support legs at transom.

Photo attached. Good luck.

Kenny

Thanks Kenny, I should have made it plain that I meant legs/supports. I've got the blocks to sit the keel on but need to be able to support the hull. Martin
