Lifting Strop

Now that I have lifting eyes fitted, I would like to get a lifting strop made.

How does one decide how long the fore/aft sections are? i.e. where the centre of balance is?

Can you lift a RIB without lifting eyes (with strops underneath for example) or would it put too much strain on the tubes? How much hassle is it to fit lifting eyes/where do they go?

Yes, you can do i without lifting eyes but care needs to be taken. The tubes should be deflated somewhat and a spreader bar should be used too.

I got mine fitted by the yard so I don't know exactly how much work goes in to it. There are two eyes on the transom and two up forward that go through to small backing plates on the outside of the hull.

Lifting with strops round the entire boat can be done but your hull shape can make a big difference on how much pressure you put on the tubes.

Its probably the safest way to do it though!

If you look at the pic attached the tudes are not under that much pressure and thats a 6m Rescue Searider.

The lifting eyes posted earlier on this thread look a little bit delicate and not very good at spreading the load across the hull. The ones on my 6.7m Delta were huge and had a plate covering an area 4 or 5 times the size!
