I have been working on getting our wing keel up on a boat lift. It has been more complex than I thought. Would it make a good mainsheet article?

Do you mean a Travelift (with slings), or some other type of lift? Are you trying to separate the keel from the rest of the boat, or blocking the keel from underneath and using stands to keep it from tipping over?

Some of these are complex operations, while others are pretty straightforward and generic for all boats. But it's hard to know from your description.

It would be a private dock with a frame.

This would be a great Mainsheet article.
I can help you get this published.
