Re: Starting my Chrysler 22 Painting Project...Advice welcomed!

Your stands have a flaw, the horizontal 4x4 post should rest on top of the vertical posts so that the load is transferred onto the vertical post. The way you have it in your pictures, it looks like the only thing holding the weight of the boat is the plywood supports... I would also not use the 2x4's for the base of the stands. Any twist and that 2x4 will snap under load. Your close, just needs a little tweaking. I would also add some plywood supports to your bow support. It doesn't take much to knock apart nailed 2x4's. I'll be following this thread closely, I'm restoring a starwind 22(same hull as your chrysler).
