Moveable Building Form

Post by Bill W »

Now that the sides are on the ZIP, do you think it would be okay to unbolt the form from the garage floor and mount some wheels on it so I can move it around ? Need to make room for other projects.

Hmm... what other projects could possibly be important enough to draw you away from your boat?

Seriously, with the side planking on, the hull is basically self-supporting or stiff enough to make moveable. Your build fixture is now merely a stand to keep your hull off the floor and at the right working height :lol:

They're right. It is plenty stiff now. The major bending is over.
