        I'm not so sure the 'chance' you took was was reall that risky. If the boat would be damaged from that little drop, would you really want to take her on the water? LOL.

            That is precisly why I decided to just go for it. With proper cushioning from the bumpers, I knew the 1" bottom would handle it. I was more concerned with the initial 90 degrees to the side as the rails are not in place as of yet. That is why I clamped the 2X4 to that area. It wasn't necessary. The actual drop was about 1 foot past where I could not control it anymore.

              Bill -

              I figure that she weighs about twice as much as my sailing dinghy. So I guess around 500 lbs. My big toe, which I ran over with the boat later, (rolled off the bumpers as I was sliding it around) also concurs.
