Replying to:Lifting an RL24 mk 1 by the chainplates?
G'day Does any one have any words of caution regarding lifting an rl24 by the chainplates ? My chainplates run up the sides and then turn at right angles to sit flat under neath the deck ...they are about 8"x3" x1/4" ss on the inside and 11/4" x1/4" on the outside thru bolted & epoxied into place> heavy duty in other words. Attachment point is a 5/16th std D bowfitting thu the deck and into the under deck part of the internal plate. Lift is via a chain block on each side and a rope block & tackle off the stern via the olds backstay strong points. needless to say I'll be placing some huge chunks of firewood under the boat so if there is a failure it wont go far! Reason is a big bog up & repair after 30 something years of trailer dings ( previous trailer) grindings on the bottom and a few ugly little lay up blisters which will need much drying out & grinding regardswayne
