Storage/ work cart thought

I have found the hull has a center of gravity causing it to want to land bottom down when vertical.

My goal is to build a storage cart for my garage with minimal width for 2 hulls. My thought is to have a rectangular base about 34" wide and 4' long. Put some wheels on the bottom and a 2x4 about 2 1/2' tall in the middle. Then just put them on the cart with the keel to the center and the weight of the boat keep in them vertical.

The hulls seem to have their center of gravity a little forward of center when up on edge. My concern was will a 4' long cart be good enough to hold them fore/aft?

Most of the work I need to do on my new hull is on the edge so I look at it as a work cart too.

I need to make space in my back garage, anyone need some Model A Ford parts? Torque converters for 289 Ford engines?

I need a rebuilt custom air-cooled VW 2-liter "upright" engine. (Can't hurt to ask...) :)

This'll be built for your 2004 and 1988 Sunfish?

If both hulls are the same, they can be locked together by tapered wooden wedges in a plank through the daggerboard trunks. :cool:
