Usually the cradles do not have a coutinuous beam running fore and aft under the keel. They have cross beams that the keel sits on, and areas between the cross beams where slings can be used. I would not recommend using the screw posts to lift the boat. They are there to hold the boat upright.

There are no other lift points other than under the keel.

Pad the cables well to prevent damage to the gelcoat.

Westsail did have two basic interior configurations, the dinette model, and the center table model. There were also other variations in interior furniture.

I would appreciate knowing the hull number and boat name, or the previous owners name, so that I may update my records. Please send an email to btaplin@westsail.com.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
