What size stands for a Hoyt 32?

Postby Drew_Sea » Tue Sep 04, 2018 7:44 am

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!
