The boat is on a load rite bunk trailer. I need advise to know if I am supporting the hull enough.

Just sitting in the trailer the large rear bunks are in contact completely with hull. The forward bunks a little.

In one post here someone said the flatbacks did not have a lot of glass and needed support when removing stringers. When we did the potter hull seacraft we didnt bother, there was so much glass on the hull.

So right now I have taken two sheets of half inch plywood and cut them. We placed them on the rear bunks as follows. The one in the rear is going transversely just immediately in front of the transom. we cut 10 inch notch to clear the keel and about a foot off to fit between fenders.

We cut two 2 by 5 foot pieces and put each one longitudinally (fore and aft) on the forward part of the rear stringers. There is complete contact along the rear long stringers.

The rear plywood conformed to the hull save the outer parts where the hull rounds up. We were pleased and think this did distribute the weight considerably from the narrow bunks to a larger surface area.

The forward plywood did not bend much but it is in contact as well and also probably distributes the weight sone .

Does anyone have experience with doing something like this?

I just dont want the hull to oil can when we remove the stringers.

You want to support the hull on the chines and let the bottom drop to get the hook out of the hull. Also support the keel and make sure it is square so no twist in the hull. If you remove the ring cap, you need to keep the hull from flaring out and causing oil canning. Cross brace it and go to town. The key is support the chine and keel, cross brace. Once you have your layers inside done, you will be fine as to the tops flaring out.

I somehow missed Shines pictures of his cradle when I studied his build.
He did not seem to support the keel, UNLESS it is on the ground.

Thanks

Yep, chines and keel. Be sure to write down width measurements before taking the cap off too!
