Glen l 15 sail area question.

So long story short, at the local insurance salvage yard there is a 3 year old Catalina 16.5 that was hit by a car. The damage is not that bad, but we'll past worth fixing.

Re: Resawing veneers

double stick tape and light cuts on a surface planer work fine. just stick it too a stable board( I use 3/4 mdf as I have it laying around.) at least once a month I cut some for work. I can easily clean up down to about .11" (~ 7/64") the key is scrap blades and cuts no bigger then 1/32&qu...

Re: Rollers or Bunks for Flats Flyer

After that, composite or wood? Anyone try both? The obvious goal would be not to replace the wood boards composite will not work, it is way too flexible. most of them recommend joists at 12" on center, where standard is 16" a few even require it. either pt or red wood. fyi, do not use gal...

Re: Build a Gantry?

I checked out the tow behind lift at Aba Daba Rents they said they go to 6'. I don't think that's high enough when you consider the height of the engine and the height of the hull on the trailer.

Re: Build a Gantry?

Why not rent one of the tow behind engine hoists. They go really high(used them for long shaft outboards) and are like $25 for the day. Used them too flip boats too.

Green back rentals always had them 916 9893000. Fun my not lived there for years, but I still remember their number
