    Probably a simple matter but one I just cant grasp on how to safely support the boat while its worked on. The boat in question is a coronet seafarer 27, 8.22m length, 3.16m beam with a .91m draft with a 4000kg displacement. I would like to build a cradle for the boat to sit in while it has work done which will safely support it while allowing people in and on it. Something similar to this http://www.boatshop24.com/web/en/werften/m/c/coronet/1446269.htm?such=1&lastshow=75 I'm unsure what points of the hull are best to run supports onto and over what length the stand should run. Any thoughts or other idea's would be helpful.

    You Can not just support the keel and use yard jacks/jack stands to stabilize it?
