DIY Dock Protector
Boating is a huge part of cottage life but there's one thing about boats thats got me stumped What's the point of having a rub rail if the darn thing never touches the dock It's about as useless as having a parachute at a spelling bee Sure boat bumpers do their work, but they wear the side of the boat big time Well today we're going to bridge that gap between boat and dock To illustrate we have a boat.we have a dock and our boats even equipped with a rub rail.
So what's the issue Well, the problem is that the boat rides above the dock most often in order to bridge that gap most of us add bumpers bumpers wear on the haul.so what if we could turn the dock vertical therefore allowing the rub rail to do its job well we could do that simply by adding a couple pieces Every boat and dock is unique For my boat, my dock, I determined thirty two inches was the right height so all we need to do now is mount them the dock.
I'm going to do that with lag bolts and recess the holes because I'm also going to add this dock edge and the head of the bolt would obviously interfere with the face of the dock edge Alright I got my lags I'm just gonna start them.I'm putting two in the bottom because that's where most of the torque is and then once the vertical pieces are mounted this will go overtop and its screwed in okay let's go down to the dock Most boats taper towards the bowel about midship.
So let's put one of our vertical pieces there And.maybe back here Alright so I'm bringing down this so the bottom of my vertical piece is flush to the bottom of my dock So I'm going to hammer this one in to get it started I'll use the ratchet for the bottom ones So next we're going to add this vinyl dock edge to our vertical, to give us even greater protection bigger boats are of course going to require more vertical supports and perhaps be struck back to the dock for increased strength.
But hey, we finally got the rub rail doing what it was designed to do and for us older folks.no I'm not included in that bracket sorry There's a handy grab rail so we can get in and out of the boat now I'm gonna hang onto the boat bumpers because a lot of dock owners aren't as cool as we are! But as far as I'm concerned we solved our problem.For Cottage Life, this is Wayne Lennox reminding you that a little project goes a long way at the cottage!.
The Best Mini Pontoon Boat for Fishing
Hello, I'm Brad Metzler with Pond King incorporated and I'd like to introduce you to the newest addition to our line of pontoon boats the Pond King Rebel. We manufacture seven different models from six to sixteen foot and this is our oneman fishing pontoon. I'd like to show you some of it's very unique features. Building a stable small pontoon boat that would fit back the truck was definitely a challenge. Our solution was designing a narrow frame that would expand once it was unloaded. The Rebel is only fortyeight inches wide in transport and expands to over sixty eight.
Inches. It's constructed completely from aluminum which makes it lightweight and rust free. The entire pontoon boat only weighs one hundred seventy five pounds so it's easy to move around with the attached wheels. Once you're near the water, pull the pins and use the handles to slide out the pontoons. The pullout trays give you plenty of room for all your gear and the deck is coated with a spray on bedliner to give you sure footing in any condition. Replace the pins and you're ready to load your battery.
And mount the trolling motor to the bracket. The pontoon boat includes a plug wired to the battery box. In addition to tan, the Rebel is also available in blue powder coating. The Rebel is so easy to launch you'll be able to access even the most secluded ponds and lake areas. With a simple boat that is always ready to go you'll be getting out on the water more often. Some of the best fishing is usually that quick trip out to a local private lake. You won't be sacrificing comfort in this boat like most small rigs.
It maneuvers easily and with its great stability you'll enjoy being able to sit or stand while fishing. I hope you've enjoyed learning about our Pond King Rebel and if you like the style of the pontoon boat but you'd like a little more room for a second person we offer the Pond King Rebel XL that has an eightfoot deck with tenfoot pontoons and weighs only two hundred fifty pounds. It comes standard with the below deck battery storage and a trolling motor mount. With its six hundred fifty pound capacity it makes it great two man fishing rig.

How to Make a TRUCK RACK in 30 Minutes or less
I'm Andrew I'm Kevin Welcome to Brojects! so this morning we were loading long wood into the truck and it's not very good in the six foot bed.I mean it hangs out way over Oh, that works perfectly. so we're thinking about building like a homemade truck rack We need to get it done in a half an hour because we've got to get to the lumber store before it closes buy the stuff and get down to the cottage but times a ticking so we gotta get going We're basically just gonna put some posts in the receivers.
Along the truck bed rail, cross them and then cross them again I think we make the cross members out of two by four No Why not We're not using the two by four What are you talking about the two by four is the strongest way to do it you misunderstand this whole project we're not making this for a contractor We're carrying lumber on a highway.why are we making this thing out of toothpicks You're ruining everything.if I can sit on it, it's strong enough yeah, ok Finally Alright let's cut.
What did you say again twenty six Thirty six This one is ready to go Yea that's ready to go Alright Yea it looks pretty good! Right now we are just doing the finishing touches on the lumber carrier take a two by four put two notches one front and one back So it'll just slot in there and that will give us our square Try to get this one Perfect! As soon as we put these two things on we're done Then we have to do the tarp You've got your electronics in the back you've got your tools in the back you don't want them to get wet.
We're going to try and make a custom tarp that goes over one thing we do want to add to it are a few hooks along the side so we'll be able to hook on go over really easily Punch these clips around the perimeter, so we're going to be able to bungee this down the idea was to be able to have something that you can put on the truck and take off the truck really easily.I think we accomplished what we set out to do that's gonna work really well.
