Ok, tomorrow I need to lift the boat from the trailer for a while. Front eye is clear and I've understood that it can be used for lifting.

But the rear has two sets of rings. One pair above the swim platform and other below. Can I lift from one or the other? And if so which ones (A or B)?

I believe A is for lifting and B is a tie-down eye for you trailer. Others can confirm.

If you're taking it off the trailer for a while I would use wood blocks to take some weight off the eyes while it's without trailer. One block under the keel near the front and 2 blocks at the rear corners. Some pieces of old carpeting between the blocks and gelcoat would be the way to go.
