Using scrubbing posts with a V34

Does anyone have experience of using scrubbing posts with a V34. If so, is there any tendency to nosedive or alternatively sit on the rudder? I am thinking of using my local facility which has a concrete base but I am a bit concerned about damaging the GRP encapsulation on the keel.

Re: Using scrubbing posts with a V34

I've put Blue Opal on the slip at the club a few times now, and not noticed anything untoward. The slip is angled though, and I always put her bow up the slip so she won't "take a bow" as it were.

When she's on the hard, most of her weight is on the bottom of the keel too, and that also hasn't caused any issues.

Thanks for the reply Duncan. I think I might give our local posts a try, from what I can see, the concrete grid is pretty level.
