Lifting points

I have a 5m Chinook and have access to crane facilities for launching. I was wondering if a RIB is a suitable boat for this type of launch and if so where and how would I fit suitable lifting eyes please?

Yes they are suitable - much better than strops around the tubes - even with spreader bars!

3 point lifts are the best although it depends on each boat where the best position for the forward one is - the other two go at the back!
