Go go gadget pallet truck!

Recently acquiring (be it on a temporary basis) a one tonne pallet truck, i thought it would be useful in re-fitting the keels, making them mobile.

The idea came from the way i reinforced the cradle to take the weight of the keels so i thought of making something similar to palletise them.

Basing the dimensions on how much room i had around the keel stub i then proceeded to work out the angle of attack that the keels attached themselves to the boat and built what looks like a very sturdy single seater sofa.

I made one of these in the nick of time as the shop was getting abit crowded so it was a great moment to get one finished keel out the shop and have it mounted in its own palletised steel crate.
