    This wooden boat is about the same weight as a Sunfish. This might be a solution for those of us who have a pickup and a need to transport a Sunfish without the rigors of a trailer ride.

    He's now converted the rear-hinged "carefully glued-up stressed skin panel" plywood piece to 2' wide, and uses two blocks (3:1) and 3/8" diameter line to pull up to 150 pounds of boat.

    I use the same 3:1 tackle to lift my boat up onto a dock: it's an easy lift. :)

    I LIKE it! :cool:
