Hauling Boat - sling / stand placement

Postby lgeller » Mon Nov 14, 2016 11:11 am

PLUSH TOY is going in for some new bottom paint next week - can someone point me to information on where they should (or shouldn't) position the slings to hoist her and stands when she is on the hard?

Thank you

Larry

There are 2 small symbol marks, fore and aft, on each hull on our boat indicating where to place the straps. Have you looked at the drawings in your owner's manual? I don't have access to that manual now, but I recall one of the drawings shows the correct spots to place the straps.

Ditto to suggestions above, but be careful as well with blocking -- the skeggs cannot support the weight of the boat.

Larry, what year is your boat? Ours is a 2006 model. I have a PDF copy of our owner's manual, but I'm thinking parts of it may be different for specific years. Also, I do not yet have PDF copies of the architectural drawings the come with the manual. Drawing #ST-03-04 shows the lift points. I'm traveling right now and can look for it when I return next week. You might also contact Rhumbline Yacht Sales -- they seem to have a lot of info about PDQ boats: http://www.rhumblineyachtsales.com/pdq34.htm

Here is the text in my owners manual regarding the lifting the boat:

6-7 HANDLING, STORING AND TRANSPORT ON SHORE (pg34)
The docking plan ST-03-04 shows the preferred locations for nylon lifting slings, for use with a single crane hook or travel lift. As a precaution, secure the slings to cleats or the toe rail to prevent slippage. Make sure that the slings are clear of hull obstructions such as speed Sensor, rudder, skegs and propeller shafts.
The 34 POWERCAT can be transported on a flatbed trailer.

Blocking Instruictions
Use adjustable stands and blocks, and place them at the following positions:
1. Under transoms: the pad must be located under the inboard aft vertical surfaces of the transom
2. Under the holding tank bulkhead on starboard side
3. Under the generator locker bulkhead on port side
4. Lastly, under the main bulkhead, both on port and starboard.
Note: The bulkheads can be located by tapping albng the hull. The bulkhead locations have a solid sound. Drawing ST-03-04 may be used as a guide for blocking.

Thank you everyone. I did find the information in the architectural drawings. There is a lot of info on those pages, so I missed it the first time around.

The boat is going to the yard today - should have her back early next week !
