You should be fine. Some where on here someone has a heavier boat supported in those locations using styrofoam blocks.

Found it - http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=14879&highlight=styrofoam

I agree with Cant. What are you planning to use as supports?

Do t he 12inch post have a wider base on them? How tall are the post?

I think anything that is taller then it is wider should have some sort of base on it to keep it from tipping over.

Especially if YOU are going to under it working.

Completely agree with this. You can't be too careful here.

Yes, it is always smart to have something on each side of you that is taller than your chest and will not crush. You could set up some cement blocks in various places that might save your life.

On the boat? The main "eye" bolt that every boat has. Circled in the picture.

Looking through the pictures I have saved, I found 1980 models both with and without the bow lifting ring.

you can always do it like this but than true the nose eye below and hook it up. Make sure it doesn't slip.

I have an interesting rear lifting ring that the previous owner (he owned the boat since 86) used to hoist the boat out of the water when not in use. I plan on using this and the front ring and two BIG engine hoists to get her off the trailer and on styrofoam if I decide to do some hard core buffing down there one year.

Ties directly into the stringers, never seen it show any signs of moving or failure. Pretty trick!

That thing would absolutely mangle a person's body parts if he/she happened to slip while entering/exiting the boat in that location. Not saying it's not a good concept, just saying that it should have soft rounded corners if it's on a watersports boat.

Trust me I have thought about it when I first bought the boat, but its really not even noticable I forget its there. The top of the mount is pretty wide and beveled, rounded and no sharp edges at all. The family has pretty much gotten used to it, in fact its a great handle when pulling yourself off the teak to get into the boat safely.

Thanks for all the input.I love this site. My boat does have lifting eye in front. I have dicided to leave on trailer for now. I want to get motor back in and running before i put boat on blocks. So many thing to do, Im trying to find right order. Thanks to all.
