Building dad a new run way

Post by lycomingkid »

Well it has come time to build a new runway and cage on dads boat and I will say it has been long over due for some time now and we’ve been at it hard to for the most part of two weeks in the afternoons after work and when we haven’t been out of town on the weekends we work on some of it then here’s a little progress that we’ve made so far

here’s the runway he decided to use as much 1/2in emt as possible and only using 3/4in for the foot stand itself and four legs going down to the angle on the stringers

We pulled the old rigging out this morning and are fixing to flip the hull over to put a new slick bottom on which will happen sometime during the week or next weekend
