BOAT RENOVATION

I am tackling a renovation project on a 1976 Reinell sailboat Model 2240. I have done a little work on two lightnings, but this project is getting me deeper into the realm of working with glass. I have read and own several Daid Casey books and they are very helpful, however, something I have run into that I thought would be an easy fix, was getting my boat lifted off the trailer for bottom work. I have found that locating used boat legs and or boat legs to rent is not that easy. If any one has any ideas that is cost effective and can be done without moving my boat would be greatly appreciated. I need to get my bottom fixed up, there are some areas that need epoxy filler and just overall cleaning and painting.

I have my boat in an insultated barn and I don''t really want to work on it outside, seems how the cold and snow is a little deterent to me. Any suggestions overal on renovations would be appreciated as well.

BOAT RENOVATION

What kind of trailer? Bunk? Roller? Screwpad?

See previous post on trailer bottom refinishing.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
