removing the 1/2 tower correct?
also, do you have your own trailer for the boat ??



Tower comes off. Takes about 1/2 an hr. about 2 dozen bolts.
The helm pod gets unbolted from tower, wrapped in a blanket and strapped down to the roof after we slide the tower off, don't have to disconnect any wiring, cables or steering hoses.
No Trailer.
I have it hauled to my house any time after thanksgiving but not after dec 1st (ins layup)

Where did you get that frame and how much do they cost? Looks like it will work out well.

Looks good Ron! I'm guessing the ends are made with plywood ? If it were mine i'd bolt in some sort collar ties/gussets to stiffen up the frames. Maybe you don't get much wind where you live but if that was here i'd be chasing it down the road, we've had gusts over 70mph this week :eek: and it was blowing a steady 40 most of the other night.

Ron,

A question and a statement.

Question: What is the shadow on the ground between the person taking the picture and the framing?

Statement: Just something for everyone to think about. In the town I live in they have accessory structure setbacks from the property lines. Where I live Ron's winter boat house would be an accessory stucture. If would really suck to have the boat all put away or ready to work on and the building inspector shows up and says your structure has to be moved now. Just check your local zoning ordinance before you put your boat or boat structure up.

Not an issue in my town.
Not considered a permanent structure also= no tax or permit

Glad it is not an issue for you, it would be here. Just thought I would bring it up for everyone.

I live in one of those towns. Here in the Peoples Republic of Niskayuna NY the building inspector only shows up if someone complains. My neighbor to the west of me has a growing collection of British cars in various states of distress, The neighbor to the east of me has his liquor store fixtures covering half his backyard while he looks for a new location . The neighbor across the street is General Electric Global Research who have their own sheot to hide. If I get a visit I'll open a can of code violation whoop-ass on everyone.

I should be OK until spring :cool:

NICE!!!

Put a diesel stove in there, dry stack thru the top, run a siphon feed from the Raider's fuel tank !!!!
LOL



I was out there sat finishing up the door roll up kits.
Don't think I need heat. it was pretty warm in there with the doors closed.
I got a few large kerosene salamander heaters for the winter and I need to be out in there.

I did have a guy stop by last april and was admiring the boat, and he asked me if the town tried to get me for a "Luxury Tax"
I laughed at him !
Looked into it and from what I understand that could come into play depending where it is stored as of june 1st.
Boat gets hauled home week after thanksgiving and back into the water mid april.
Town can pound sand !
