    At a good shipyard they will not lift the boat without a "HAULOUT DIAGRAM" from the boat builder or Naval architect that describes the underwater profile, appendages and special details. If you don't have this haulot diagram the shipyard sends divers plus an engineer ...charges 500 bucks... and may still not accept liability.

    Well thats Europe for you 500 bucks for nothing. We dont have that here and Ive never seen it from Hongkong to Phuket.

    What if you made it yourself. Glad I dont live there any more.

    Europe will disappear up its own *** with regulation.

    Most yards here are professional and know what boats are --they know how to lift and chock any boat with or without the owner . All you need is a bony knuckle.
