RC Sailing – Folding Wood Boat Stand – IOM

3rd April 2015

Basic position with bulb secured

 

The PVC pipe boat stand which came with my boat is a bit rickety. John Ball suggested that he and I make a pair of better ones from plans he downloaded from the web.  The stand designer is David Jensen of Bellevue, WA  –
Thanks David 🙂

Today we built two of these and we are well pleased with the results.

I had wood sufficient on hand and John furnished the dowel rods and hardware costing about $8 /boat. We deviated from the original by using plywood for the boat supports.

All that remains is the sanding and a couple of coats of polyurethane.

Done!
