You should have some minimal 110V power on board. Most of the shipyards down here have full 30 and 50 amp service during haul and block, but some only have 15 amp (household) sockets. That's enough to keep the battery charger running, which would be my first concern.

Drainage off the boat of any rain water should be considered. Some boats will fill parts of themselves you don't want filled if you don't ensure the boat sits so water drains off.

Same for exhaust systems as the boat is lifted. Bow should be high so any water in the exhaust will drain out, not into the engine.

A couple of points that have not been mentioned. If you boat is such that rain water can collect o the deck if the boat is not level, then before you haul take a level reading of your swim platform, or some other place on the boat that will be accessible as you haul out. That way when the boat is set on blocks you can make sure that the boat is level or tilted so that the water will drain out.

Also close the thru-hulls (except for the bilge pumps) and plug up the exhaust outlets to prevent rodents and insects from getting into the boat.

If you have exterior teak you may want to invest in canvas to reduce the sun's effect. This would depend on what you intend to do in the future.

I don't know your boat but you should be aware of where the straps are placed.

Try to place them at or near a bulkhead to prevent to much flex on the hull as the weight is applied to those straps. I have seen damage caused by the straps applying to much pressure to things like rails and the deck hinge.

The same when you block the boat. Do you want it bow up level or bow down.

Is it going on a cradle or are you using stands?

IF using stands I like to use 4 per side.
With 4 you can remove and replace them one at a time to do the bottom paint.

If you can find out the proper place to place the straps on haul out I suggest you put stickers on both sides of the boat indicating where to put the straps. Saves arguments and wins lawsuits if anything goes wrong..

What size is your pick-up to haul that trailer?

I used a John Deer 544 Loader and it took all that was in it to pull my boat up the incline. Could have used a bigger one.
