Hello everyone,

I am in need to purchase boat stands for my Hoyt 32 (6ft draft version). What is the proper size stands for this boat?

According to Brownell, the suggested size is up to 96"! This is definitely far larger than the stands she was on when I purchased her.

For sale locally there are some used 48" to 65" stands. These seem like they may be too small, but at less than half price of new it's worth mentioning.

It would be unusual to support the boat above the waterline, so 6ft plu whatever height your keel is supported above the ground should be max. Also, they usually don't bear to much weight - normally the boat rests on the keel and the stands keep her from tipping.

Last year I purchased (4) 35-52" stands for the mid and stern sections. With a single 4x4 block under the keel these are just tall enough to work, although I wish I would have gone the next size up.

For the bow I purchased used from a friend but don't recall their height, they are considerably taller of course. (No help here, sorry)

Appreciate the information.

John, just to confirm, you have the deep keel version?

If that's the case, I should jump on at least 4 of those 65" stands!

I have attached a photo of the stands my boat was on last winter. Hopefully you can gauge the height of the stands by comparing them to the boat. She has the long keel as you can see.
Hope this helps.

Here’s an alternate view. They are getting cropped by the site. Hopefully you can see enough to figure it out. If not PM me your email and I’ll send them direct.
