Use this strap to lift your keel with the boat on a hoist. Only with the Sail22 J/70 Lifting Straps. Eliminates using the keel crane while using a hoist.
J70 Keel Lifting Strap
Posted by Andrew Leeksma on Aug 13th 2019
I should have purchased this strap several years ago when I purchased a set of boat lifting straps from Sail22. I've only used it once but already it's apparent that it's much easier than using the keel lifting crane. Being a dry sailed boat, my keel crane winch gears just wore out!
When lifting the boat off the trailer it comes under tension just as the boat is lifted from the trailer by it's straps and when lifting from the water the keel stops rising before the bulb would hit the hull. Perfectly coordinated with the matching Sail22 boat lifting straps.
Time will tell if there's a downside that I don't yet recognise. Meanwhile, it's a full five star review.
