I'm sick of paying $500 for my local marina to haul my 23' strip-planked boat out for painting. I'm wondering how hard it would be to build 'legs' for her, so I can beach her for a tide and paint both sides.
The legs themselves seem pretty simple, but how are they attached to the hull so they're strong enough to hold the boat up?
I've been hunting through my books and can't find any info. Perhaps I'm using the wrong word? Is there a nautical term for 'legs'?
Any ideas, drawings, or photos appreciated.
