Is there anything "special" about drying out against a harbour wall because of the 345's torpedo keel?

We have a torpedo keel on the 370, it does make drying out a little more tricky but we have done it and offer some suggestions. 

The boat will tend to follow the contour of the keel base when drying out so its important to be awake when the keel first touches the ground and ensure that the warps connecting to the wall or drying post are evenly tensioned so the boat stays level. Its really essential to monitor the warp tension as the bottom touches to ensure a level boat when all the weight is on the keel. Otherwise the boat will tilt back or forwards .
Hope this helps,
all best
