Possibly Overbuilt...

Slow progress of late, due primarily to a lingering 3-week cold. The meds are working and I am feeling much better, thanks.

Yesterday's project was to build a gantry to raise Gardens onto (and probably off of) her trailer.

8' wide, 10'tall, 1-ton chain hoist (not pictured) (and that temporary bottom cross-bar will be removed).

Possibly overbuilt.

The Boat Cave clutter will be cleaned up before the gantry is positioned and Gardens comes off the floor.


  1. Nice crane structure. Never too strong for your baby.

    1. Thanks, Rik. "Never too strong" was the fundamental 'design' criteria but once finished it certainly seems strong enough. The test will be in getting Gardens safely onto her trailer.

  2. Nothing over built ever breaks, what could be better when lifting your craft. Best of luck for a successful lift.
