Do stabilizer fins affect hauling out using a cradle?
I watched and helped on a small tender running lines and acting as a tug, during multiple attempts to haul a wooden IG50 raised after recently sinking. This yard uses the "trial and error" method for hauling, the failure of multiple attempts was put down to the presence of stabilizer fins. Eventually a very large truck mounted crane was called in to haul her out.

What is that?
