Anybody lift a Farallon 25 whaleback with a sling or harness? If so, where did you attach it or if you have pics that would be great. Thanks.

Happens all the time @ Port San Luis. Brent who runs the launch has a Farallon. So do a few other Coms. They are not attached they go under the hull.

Ok, thanks for the info. I'll try giving him a call to see if I can get more details on placement and straps to use.

Go to Port San Luis Sport Launch Facebook there could be some pic's of boats hanging on the sling?

The lift has the straps and they determine placement,all you do is show up.

How about for shaft drive boats? Maybe not so tough getting it off trailer as you could pass strap under strut easily then, but how about getting it out of the water?

Agreed. I talked to a guy that slings his 27 at this pier. He is able to do it with certain reinforced lift points. Sounds like it’s gonna work out. I’ll ad pics when I figure it out.

Gotcha,If its roll your own id definitely call farallon and check on where they say the reinforced lift points are and strength of lifting straps recommended.

Then you are going to want the strap system custom made, Dont want to have them break and drop the boat in the drink. It takes some trial and error to get the balancing point right., I think you would be ahead to hang out at the crane/boom and just observe. Or talk to the lift operator they can probably point U in the right direction...
