Thanks all. After my wife deemed herself a ‘widow’ for the 2 years building my first boat I promised her no more boat builds – a restoration is not a build!
This is some of the work to date, having just found this great forum.
Made wedges out of 6X6’s and used existing outboard mounting holes to secure wedges to transom.
Apologies for the upside downers, IPad bests me.
Through bolted a 3/4” pipe flange to double layer of 3/4” ply and screwed it to the 6X6’s.
Essentially bully a boat ‘rotisserie’ with a chain block on the bow eye, and pulled out the oldie Goldie Tee Née trailer.
