Hi All,

It is that time again to do the necessary work one the Hulls, in order to prepare for next season.

This time we are working on an A-Cat ( Pesa ) from one of my friends.
We are looking for ideas, to make a solid working bench which will fit one hull.
last year we used simple shreds but the problem was that the hull walked away while sanding it.
Any idea or picture is welcome.

When we were about to refinish my h17 hulls, we decided to make cradles and so forth for the hulls so they would stand up straight. However, we had come to the realization that we wouldn't always want the hulls standing up straight, so we fabricated a simple system using 2 2x4" and two sawhorses.

It worked for us. Not sure about an A-class, you might have to make the 2x4"s wider so it doesn't cave in the hull.

Thanks for the reply,

We used something similar last year, but we have to work on the deck as well.

We did make a V shape attachment on the Sawhorses , this did work for the Nacra 5.7 and 6.0 but the A class is to much fragile for such a construction.

In the picture of your Hobie upside down on the saw horses, I noticed the horse shoe on your wall.... DANGER...DANGER: It is considered very bad luck to hang a horse shoe on the wall pointing down... all the luck will run out! You've probably noticed that others could point higher, could get to A-mark faster and never found the same holes as you on the lake. Turn that shoe over and it will all change!
