reverse engineering v.3

Sometimes the best solutions are the easiest,
and yes sometimes that means being a copycat to another design.

The solution to this problem was obvious from the get go.
The tricky part was trusting measurements,
and utilizing only scrap material.

I tested it out but wasn't the lucky one to actually need it.

This was much easier for them,
rather than laying on the stomach with a concrete drill.

That old life raft is not as tippy as it looks.
Hmm let's see here's some old pictures.

Wow this brings back memories of simpler times,
when life was easy.

If you can't grind, plasma torch, fit and weld on a little raft 18" from the water,
in the middle of the night,
go back to table welding

And then there is the nasty "tweaker arm" side effect.
Even with a jacket!
Damn chispas.

Funny how they'll haul a boat out for paint but not for surgery.

Thanks for coming with me on that accidental journey down memory lane!
