This 36' Sea Ray aft cabin motor yacht was hauled and blocked for the winter. The yard neglected to use the recommended 3 point minimum under the keel.

This boat weighs more than 18,000 # wet and has a foam filled keel and needs at least 4 blocks (5 would be better) under her. The keel was severely crushed and will need extensive repairs.

As you will see in the photos the blocking board is also crushed.

The amount of force needed to crush the wood 2 x 6 to half of it's original width is enormous.

                                                                             How is your boat blocked ?


She's a beauty....and in such wonderful condition.

Not for long
