My Big A should be here soon!! Had to get ready.

Many here have given me some tips. So here's a $.02 that you might be able to use.

I took a couple of 5 gallon buckets (mine were from pool clorine tablets-paint buckets will do also) and two pieces of scrap ~3.5' 2X4. Drilled holes in the centers of the 2X4's and buckets. Used a couple of old bolts I had laying around bolted the 2X4 to the buckets and wala with buckets upside down horses for my BigA.

If I hadn't been in such a hurry might have stacked the 2X4's up a bit. I only have 16" of clearance from the top of rig to floor level. Don't know if that's enough to test the Mirage drives.

Rig is cheap enough to throw into the pickup truck so I can rig the yak where ever I'm going and leave them when I paddle out.

You could probably add some surplus pipe insulation for padding if you want to use them for storage devices.

I don't have a digital camera. I'll try scanning some prints. But we are talking two weeks plus here due to wife hanging onto camera for Xmas with a monster roll.
