The yards in this area tend to block the bow a bit high to assist cockpit drainage and deck run off........I have seen them use a level to get the port/stbd right

Our yard has a few veterans that are usually very competent, and this is the first year I let them pull my boat without me being there.  They did fine except they blocked the boat bow high and slightly to starboard instead of flat level as we've done for the last 5 years.  I thought I'd try this and see if it fairs better.  



They screwed up when pulling another boat, an Apache 42, and caught his prop with the sling.  His boat has the prop exiting out the back of the keel, with a separate skeg hung rudder several feet back.  The sling bent the shaft, cracked the shaft log inside the keel and the top mechanics are working on it right now, to fix it.  They've pulled this boat for several years, but just misjudged the underwater shape and placed the slings wrong.  Expensive oops.  Poor owner is kicking himself for not marking the sling locations, but I think he will get a new prop out of it.  



I have a set of laminated "Sling" labels sitting in a cup in the galley, I better get mounted.

To keep this boating related, the health care for boats in my area sucks.  Boatyards near me employ street labor, have high employee turnover, low talent, virtually no long term experience and high prices.  The boatyard nearest me, which I decline to use, has a history of dropping boats off stands and Travel-lifts.  

This year, I will probably start doing bottom jobs myself because I hate to pay big bucks to morons for low quality work.  It's not rocket science.  :(

Gentlemen, we are circling around a sore subject here..... I am getting the impression that you are telling me that we don't have the best health care in the world??? Even though we pay through the nose for it??? And when you listen to the insurance companies.... and their supporters????  Let's not go there.

  Maybe a modification: 'medical costs in the "developed" world OUTSIDE THE U.S. are not bad either' 


  Things healthcare-related in many nations like Canada and New Zealand don't cost anywhere near what they do in the U.S.  This is part of the impetus for importing prescription drugs from Canada.
