Hi Tony
I'm surprised at your post as I have had my rib lifted in and out ( a year later) in Guernsey; pumped up the tubes pretty hard and it worked out fine. I was in the rib at the time, pretty nerve-racking I can tell you! Not really happy to do it as it leaves wretched marks and cannot be good for the tubes.

Mine was taken out at M&G and they were dead against using the hoist. then again i think it worked out better with the trailer..

This is the official word from Humber

It is important when using this method that you use the services of a qualified crane operator. You should check the crane will accept the weight of the craft and that both sling and lifting points are approved for this purpose. Towing or securing eyes fitted to the craft have not been fitted for this purpose and must not be used under any circumstances. Where lifting points have not been fitted to the craft, the crane strop method can be applied providing spreaders are also used. Using a strop without spreaders will place extreme pressure to the hull and tubes and may cause crushing and damage which would not be covered under warranty. For further please contact the manufacturers.

if you have ever seen a solid boat of decent size lifted ex water without correct spreaders you would never lift the rib (although smaller) without them. the force exerted is considerable. mine comes out under a travel lift which spreads the slings, tubes are semi deflated to ease pressure - this should be on the hull not the tubes.

On a positive note it is not so important to lash slings as with a larger boat under a crane/spreader lift.
