Re: Home made jack stands

Maybe you could just rent, or borrow a couple of metal jack stands from a boat yard.

BUMP.....
And one of the pads spans topside, boot stripe and anti-fouling paints so if I can just use a couple of temporary 4X4 to support the deck I can get this lady back in the water.
Thanks.

Re: Home made jack stands

I have a proper metal cradle for my Edel 22'. The problem I have is that the 2 front pads rest against the topside paint instead of the bottom anti-fouling paint.

Come next April I want to paint the topside including the 8" squares now covered by these 2 pads.

QUESTION:
Can I use 6x6's jammed underneath the deck to act as temporary front stands and then loosen the 2 front pads enough to roll & tip under them?

The 6x6's would only be in place long enough for the paint to be applied and dry and then I would crank the pads back into place.

My boat has been on the hard for 2 years and is at the very back of the yard, blocked in securely by all the other boats over wintering. There is no way that they yard crew can get near my boat to re-position it properly on the cradle.

Thanks for your feedback

Wood jack stands

The pic's in the original post are really helpful... thanks a lot. I'm in a predicament where the person I bought the boat from informed me after the sale, one season later, that the jack stands were actually his and are not available for my use this winter. So looks like I'll be building some stands to brace a 23 foot Grampian.... really appecriate the pic's.

paulk To get back to the stands themselves...
Some have suggested the good idea of putting pads underneath the feet, to help them avoid sinking into the ground. If they sink or heave with a frost...oops. Our yard does this with their stands even on a paved surface. Another important safety feature is to chain the pairs of stands together so they can't slip out and have the boat fall over that way.

Ken05 I worked for a 80,000+ employee Insurance Co. for a while. I can attest that the devil himself is a fat, new jersey insurance co. attorney.
The Board of Directors could easily step in for the cast of the "Sopranos" and no one would know the difference.

Randomized? I thought ALL insurance companies denied all claims until you took them to court... That's basically my experience anyways.

I agree with Tager about legally required private insurance amounting to extortion. It gives them a captive audience- they can literally charge as much as you can possibly afford to pay, and pay out only when ordered to do so by a judge but you'll keep buying it!

tommays well

It has to do with stands failing ,these folded in a 60 knot storm BUT the boat was on the hard masr-up

AND he already bought the tops of the stands which is 2/3 of the total cost anyway ?
