Post Good Glass Shop in NY

Now that my engine is out for winter i got to thinking about my hull. I wanted to haev it checked out to see if it has formed any uneeded hooks or rockers over the years. I have heard they can be created just from the wieght of the hull when its on a trailer. Anyone konw of any shops that coudl check it out for me and aren't goign to charge an arm and a legs for it?

yeha but what if it ha s hook or rocker that was designed into the hull tht i mistakenly identify as a "bad one" I need soemone that can tellthe difference between one that was intentional and one that was created accidentally.

Also its on the trailer now how can i get it up off of my traile to check it out? I am apprehensive about blocking it and then crawling underneath it. I've never had to block a hull before. Any advice???
