Further to my last....

I'm trying to estimate the lateral compression loads for a sling-lift early next week.

The boat's mass is 3 tonnes. The 8m./16.6' slings are well up to the job. The upper triangle in the illustration is equilateral.

Would someone with trig rather less rusty than mine kindly help me gain a 'first order approximation' of the likely compression load?

Slings 8m. / 26'6" new and certificated. ( flinger trubl! )
