Cradles for inverted Flying Scot


Stafford, Virginia
United States

Made for my Flying Scot so that I could invert the boat and repair the balsa core on my aft deck. They are solidly built and I used expanding foam to create perfectly fitting cradles that support the deck to prevent any pressure points and deck distortion.

It looks like I also need to do a repair to my aft deck. I wonder if we could chat about what you did? My name is Dave and you can email me at dkuechen at gmail do net

I am going to paint the bottom of my 1975 Flying Scot before I put it in the water for my first sail.  The trailer rollers prevent me from getting to all the bottom.  If I push it off on the ground should I be able to pull it back on the trailer or should I rig some type of elevated support and paint under that?
