Leg Positions for Victoria 800

I intend to buy a pair of 'YachtLegs' for my Victoria 800 and I am trying to decide where to position them so that they only act as up-righting props and don't take any of the deadweight of the boat.   Given the keel profile my first pass suggests about 12" forward of the main bulkhead between the cockpit bridgedeck and the cabin. In Joyspring's layout this would put them behind the stove position  and behind the basin in the heads.
Comments/suggestions welcomed; better yet anyone with a Victoria / Francis kitted out with legs?

Re: Leg Positions for Victoria 800

David,
Having had a look in the Technical Manual, for your boat, and looked at various "yacht legs" websites I think you are right with your calculations. Are you planning to have adjustable legs or fixed length ones? I suspect that you would also get some good advice from various suppliers. Please let us know your final solution so that we might update our technical library.

After discussions with Paul Williams of 'YachtLegs' and on his recommendation I have ordered a set of fixed legs [PL20].
They have a range from 1.4 - 2.0 metres, weigh 9Kg each and stowed length is 1.3 metres.
The adjustables are 14Kg each and twice the price!
I am still garnering info on the final position.
