I've tried weighing my (somewhat waterlogged) Sunfish using a person at each end, standing on a scale. Too precarious and back-unfriendly for my taste, lifting and balancing the hull while squinting at the dials. I also don't always have a ready partner, when I want to weigh. So necessity is a mother. The following idea was stimulated by harborfreight.com reducing their price for a 50 lb. fish scale to $2.99 (item # 03194-1BKA). 1) At EACH of bow and stern, hang the fish on TWO scales that are "end to end". That's FOUR scales altogether, total price $12. At each end, the two scales should read the same; in any case, total weight is the sum of all four readings. 2) The bow handle can hang on the cross piece of a sawhorse. The stern can hang on a timber (using a web sling) put over the top of two parallel sawhorses. Physicists and others, feedback? Just BTW based on carrying hulls over the sand way too often and FAR, I'm guessing there's more weight (by half?) at the stern (e.g. 150 lbs. would be 90 stern and 60 bow). Hmmm, maybe I'll get a third scale for the stern. -Steve D.
