Lifting an Rl24
We are currently refitting a MK1 RL24 and would like to know the best slinging position so that we can lift it off the trailer to work on the hull. Using a forklift with a spreader bar and slings to do the lifting.

Anthony, Why use a forklift and risk damage? Would alos have to be a very large forky with long tynes. Better to lift off trailer using only jockey wheel as lifting mechanism.

Re: Lifting an Rl24
Will have access to a large enough shed with adequate structure to sling from the roof trusses.

Could I revisit the original question to determine the best stations to apply sling loads.

Indeed, it would be useful to have some detailed information on frame positions and strengths for trailer roller locations ?
