H16 - trailering backwards  Bottom

Go to page [-1] 1 - 2:

  • I think my overhang is the same as before, with the rudders on. But I agree it seems to be sticking out a lot. I actually marked the 4' length from the bows with blue tape. I'll see what it looks like when I pull it forward (backward? toward the car anyway) that far. The other benefit would be more room in the hangar.

    If I need red flags, it will be easy enough to clip them on the bridle tangs.

    I've got my forward mast support extension welded up. Tomorrow I'll weld it on.

  • Trailer, schmailer! Bryan, the way you operate you should just buy a cheap, run-down shack on the lake. With your energy level, skills, and abilities, you'd have the place all fixed up (and mast up storage) before the weekend's out.

  • You know Jerome, I moved to a fly-in community and haven't flown for 8 years now. I don't want to jinx sailing too!

    We took the trailer out today with the H16 on backwards. I like it. Much easier to step the mast. Here is a trial fit:

    Afterwards I took it down and finished the weldment. I welded a couple of things on the side to keep the mast from falling over/rotating in the rubber V block.
