IF the yard is not a specialist in wood , be sure they use enogh keel blocking while out.

4 blocks would be good , not just 2 as they would do for a plastic boat,

IF not already done mark on deck where the lift straps should be slung for the re entry and "next time".

An evening spray of water (not enough that the dirt under will be mud in the AM) can help slow the boards shrinking.

Depending on the paint selected only bottom growth , need be removed , a very light sanding is all that is required.

If you are using soft style paint and the work grows to a long job , a coat of cheap soft paint is the best way to slow drying, paint over it before launching with the "good " stuff.
