PS: never ever heat up PVC like I discribed above, it emits deadly Hydrogen chloride gas when heated and will kill you. (Polyvinyl chloride) is the chemical name for the plastic (PVC for short), and when heated the Hydrogen chloride comes out ( kind of like WWI mustard gas), just so you know (starting at around 200f). I just would hate to read the headline man drowns in garage working on boat. It only takes a small wiff ( I have burn't my lungs and eyes working with PVC in molding plants). As a side note, the Hydrogen chloride gas emitted by the PVC during molding is so corrosive that all PVC molds must be made of stainless steel, also OSHA requires outside venting of all molding machines running PVC. I'm not even talking about the deadly dioxins that are released when heated (even more deadly), that's another story. The stuff is perfectly safe as long as it's kept below 158 deg F. I'm just sayin...
Holy Smokes Batman!! Time to retire that PVC bong!
Nohuhu, that made me actually laugh out loud.
I've been using a carpet square, but still am concerned with the gudgeon and rudder contact with the ground when I lift the hull - it's ever so slight, but the entire weight is focused there. I'm planning to build a small wood mount that elevates the tail just enough to keep the rudder/gudgeon clear when lifting onto the truck racks. Or I guess I could load it stern-forward...
