Wheels for the Dory

How to handle a 350lb bare hull? Easy, build a frame to hold it- if it never moves from one space. Taking up a third of the floor space shared with other projects and machinery, it needs to be mobile. A flat bottom makes it easier to handle, so another afternoon was given to teaching safety and the basics.

Measure twice, just to be sure
Squaring lines for framing

  Fun with the impact driver

On with the casters, locking swivels for up front

Screwing down the decking, and reusing a piece of osb

 Easy to move

From inside to outside and back in again

From here, measurements can be taken to set up a trailer to handle it.
