yep, keep them quite wide, it will help keep the boat stable whilst lifting, if you need lifting slings we have a great supplier if you need there details.

Here's some inspiration

Had these done by IMPS at Sparkes in 2003. They are tested and certified which satisfies the yard's insurance needs as well as mine. I went for four point lift for a 7m Humber on the recommendation of the fitters. It's worked well and a small amount of rust just noticeable on the exterior hull nuts which will be removed by tomorrow!

Sorry the pics are a bit dark but I was grovelling around under the winter cover.

The forward D rings also act as a useful tie down ring for things such as the portable fuel tank which I use for long passages but take out for local running.. i.e. Penzance to Scilly

Hope that gives you some ideas.
