Drying out on scrubbing grid

Rival 38c
Posted: 2 May 2017 - By: Tim & Arabella Brentnall

We are thinking of using the scrubbing grid at Suffolk Yacht Harbour, Levington this weekend. Does anyone have any thoughts on the practicalities of this with a Rival, in particular how best to balance the boat on a concrete surface bearing in mind the hollow sump at the aft end of the keel? When we have had her lifted out and put in a cradle, we normally ask the yard to avoid putting any weight on the sump and put in suitable chocks to facilitate this. Would it be better to dry her out facing forwards- i.e. slightly uphill, or facing outwards and so downhill? Or will she be absolutely fine whatever?
