Most boatyards are afraid of a walk away wood boat owner.

One that will see the amount of work ($$$$$) needed and just leave.

They also fear being sued for not having enough straps if the hull crushes while being pulled.

A stout deposit $2K to $5K will usually get a yard to work with you.

Slings must not be across the prop shaft(S), otherwise its no big deal.

Be sure the yard uses enough 4 is best and slings are lashed between so none will slip forward and off.
