2005 fiesta 270 sling lift/ travel lift

I have a 2005 rinker 270 Fiesta VEE (new to me) on a trailer. My question is are there indicators under the rub rail for sling/travel lift placement. Thank you

    There are no indicators on my 342 for lift straps. I have had my  boat hauled out many times with a travel lift with no problems. I have seen other boats where they indicate where to put straps, but most lift operators know where the bulkheads are and position the straps accordingly. Rinker makes a very strong hull, so I would not worry about it if the lift operator knows what he is doing.

    I added (2) small black diamond stickers per side (appropriate!) at the places to put the slings for reference.  I marked the spots when I hauled out and added them later.  As l-skynyrd noted, the lift operators are usually pretty good, they just need to know if you have outdrives or inboards.
