That should be okay. Just make sure the forward U-bolt is man-enough. You can put the forward U-bolt back-to-back with the existing outside one for the painter.

You'll need to lift her with ropes attached to the U-bolts to ascertain where the COG is. Adjust the ropes until she is level and then have the strops made up the same.

lifting

Hi Andy, thank you very much i was not sure whether to have the rear 2 stropes shorter as they are taking most of the weight

Why not ask Ribcraft how to do it?

Yes, the two aft strops will be shorter. How short will depend on the weight of your engine.

I had my strops made by Spencer Rigging in Cowes.
