    Default Nice jacks

    Man I've hand off loaded alot of boats from there trailers in my time. Sometimes using an A frame but sometimes not possible. I sure wish I'd seen those jacks about a hundred years ago.I'm thinken about modifing some semi trailer landing gears,then I'd be able to lift the boat without crawling 10 times under the boat with bottle jacks. Thanks alot for the pictures, Once agine very nice work.

    I don't have any real good ones pertaining to just the bender itself but you could just go to www.jd2.com and look all you want. I have the model 3
    They only offer dies for tubing tho...no angles.
    Hossfeld is the one for that.

    Those are Yard Arms and they ain't cheap. They aren't mine
    I have given thought of using several things as well. Inside of those are nothing more than cherry picker jacks.

    Talking Made it into Powerbaot Mag

    As hard as this is for me to believe this boat has made it into Powerboat Magzines latest issue.
    It is on pg 44-45 in the November issue.
    Not much said about it but it is there nontheless

    Default Remember:things happen for a reason?

    Hey FK,just the fact that your work was chosen to be on their feature boat speeks for itself.You know and we know who's the craftmen behind it.They could have taken any platform from anybody they wanted,and that's exactly what they did.They took yours,and they have their reasons for it.Accident or not,set back or not,FusionKing kicks a$$,Frank

    FK, I TOTALLY agree with him!!!!!!!!! You wouldn't happen to have scanned that pic in, do you??? Hawaii sucks for magazines, so I wouldn't be surprised if we don't have it!!! I'll check Border's tomorrow...Last time I was there a few months ago, they didn't HAVE powerboat magazine. We are one of the states that are SOOOOOO anti-boat friendly!!!!!!! Funny huh? If the politicians had their SH!T together, we could be a REAL destination for boaters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Once again though, congrats on making the magazine!!!!!!!!!!
    Just little 'ol FK with his tiny shop......making it BIG TIME
    (all you newbies out there!!!! Pay close attention! If you have the skills, SEE WHAT IS POSSIBLE???!!!!!!!!!!!!)
    I"m outta here........
    peace out

    I'm kinda glad they haven't spent my tax dollars installing rest islands at 75 mile intervals all the way out to your corner of the planet. I'm sure they'd be run like the Jersey Turnpike and fuel would cost you 50 a gallon (who else you gonna buy from?).

    Pleasure boats capable of making the trip are already doing so. Not too many people can afford such a rig. Those who can seem to prefer places owned by other countries.
