BOAT STAND

Robust Stable Boat Stands Ideal for DF95 and IOM

All you have to do is Glue the Plywood to the Stands and lightly sand the edges of the wood and finish with paint or varnish to your choice. ( Glue, Varnish and or Paint is not supplied)


Cradle the boat vertically or at a slight angle or right over at about 45 degrees if the wind is blowing


For those of you who have wood etc lying around you can use the dimensions shown in the one photograph to construct your own.

Some other examples of boat stands  for those of you who want to perhaps make something different - the sky is the limit!

This is a quick and simple stand for any new DF Owner to put together.

Material costs about R80 to R100 and mist stuff is readily available from an Electrical Wholesaler or Plumbing supplier.

Do not go to Builders Wharehouse for the connector - my local store wanted to charge me R20.00 each whereas the Electrical wholesaler it cost about R7.30 each.

Use some fine water paper to freshen up the PVC tubing and you don’t have to worry about painting or varnishing ….. Assuming you want white of course !

The DF95 Display stand straight out the kit is not very stable.

Many boats or sails have been damaged when used on site the wind blows the stand over and brakes something.

This simple modification can be made to your stand to make a more stable and adjustable version.
