robtstrong posted a topic in Discussion for the J/22 ClassI have to adjust the 6 Support Pads on my trailer as if it is the initial setup. My main concerns are proper weight distribution between the keel and the pads; and having the boat level on the trailer when the trailer is level. I have available to me a dockside hoist. But the old surface around the hoist is not flat, even, or level. The hoist arm is very low, such that I must attach the hoist's chain directly to the lifting bridle fitting at top of the keel. This makes it hard to keep the boat level when it is hanging from the hoist. Is there a procedure I can use to setup the pad positions on the trailer under these circumstances? Thanks.
