Re: Boat on stands for 2 years, stands have dented into hull

I suppose when you refer to a cradle, you mean a long term dry storage cradle like folks sometimes use way up in the great white frozen North for when the water turns into that stuff we use to make frozen Margaritas (but with no alcohol or anything good in it)?
No need for a cradle to be expensive, is it is just a stationary cross-bunk you can build yourself easily, but it would be a pretty big pain to do a bottom job around it. It is the crane and the yard space that is expensive, but a cradle will not stop a hull from hooking if the mass is not resting on the keel...and all else depends on the boat. An old J-24 will warp like a wet paper bag, and pop back straight once it is in the water. An old Chrysler 22 can lay out on its side abandoned on an oyster bank, and you can drag it off, polish it up and bust a good symmetrical mold off of it...but that would be illegal to copy and use the design to build electric picnic boats, so I totally don't know anyone that has done that...

Ah...Text is NOT the best communication tool. Glad you are feeling good about stuff. Looks like you got her cleaned up good.

Re: Boat on stands for 2 years, stands have dented into hull

Launched boat, dents and all, yesterday!



Thanks for all the tips.

Weirdly, now that the boat is in the water, and the dents are out of sight, they are quickly becoming out of mind, too!

But...what if the fish talk about your dentie old boat?


BTW, nice waterline. Sometimes I cheat and put a fine black line on the upper edge of the boot topping, but I like me a red and black detail with white/ cream and varnish tones. Something seems missing though....something...tall and skinny.

Tall skinny thing coming soon! Taking it piece by piece, and needed to get the boat floating before the river floods!
