well there is doubt if its a luger (though I think it might be its REALLY similar) and it is a 27 footer the stats say 26.92 feet (to me anything over 26.5 and under 27.5ft is a 27footer.)
the keel is NOT on the trailer so the problem remains of how to "lower" the keep to the trailer frame (if I go that route) safely.
ie how do I lower 800 pounds 8 some inches without killing something and still be able to MOVE it :-)
I absolutely plan to fully restore that keel. When I am done it will shine pretty and have brand new paint and not one spot of rust or corrosion.
I just need to get it to MOVE first so I can remove that bolt and sep it into 2 pieces.
Then I can go to town with the grinder and bristle wheel and clean it up nice and shiny :-)
Denise. Thanks a lot. a new link for me to burn hours on :-) hehe
FYI your tripod link is not working.
ahh got it copied the image location. They don't allow third party filtering ie "linking"
Just C&P the link into your browser
that sure looks like my keel :-) more and more conclusive that its a luger 26.
