Matt - I know you get asked a thousand questions, but I would appreciate your input here. I made a beach dolly for my Bravo and, when I'm not sailing, I would like to store the boat on my homemade dolly. Will storing the boat on the dolly as shown in the pictures below warp the hull? This location is in the shade, except for about an hour of morning sun. I'd prefer to avoid the hassle of taking the boat off the dolly every time I come back to the house, but I'd do this if necessary.

BTW - the minor hull indentations were on the hull before I recently started storing the boat in this fashion. I figured it was a natural result of the manufacturing process. Thanks!

That would not be recommended - just put it flat on the ground - that'd be 100 times better.

I was afraid of that. I did not mean to suggest that I would store it in this fashion all the time - probably a few days to a week at a time, but I guess better safe than sorry. Thanks for the response.
