Ideas on how to set up rigging on fiverglass

Postby codyp1989 » Tue Jun 28, 2016 10:32 pm

I just bought my first airboat hull and looking for ideas on how to set up my rigging and how to go about setting it up on the stringers. Not sure what I need to build to bolt it to the stringers and the safest way. All ideas are appreciated and pictures are preferred so I can get a good idea

2nd from the left end of the above Menu Bar is a link titled >Pictures & Wallpapers

If you follow that link you will probably find a few dozen such examples as you scroll through what is there.

Can't really go wrong with using angle iron either.. I used about 6' of 1.5"x1.5" OR 2" x 2" angle for each stringer and then welded conduit to that.

Where are you located? That will help with your question as to where you can get the conduit.
