I wrote in an earlier post that I wanted to build a gantry to remove the engine from my old tug. Well I contacted a former boss of mine and he ended up pulling it for me.
But the gantry stayed on my mind
I found an engineering Website that had some plans you can buy to build your own gantry!
I looked at buying one but are you kidding! They want your right arm for them. Below is the website if you are interested.
I am getting quotes on materials for mine. The one I am going to build will have enough capacity to lift the front of the boat. This will make reloading it on a trailer much easier. It took 5 hours to unload it when I brought it home. I will also allow me to refit the engine on my own. I have wanted one of these for years so now I have an excuse to build one.
