Kayak hoists update

9 posts in this topic

2 yaks in the air!! :P

My usual DIY partner in crime  (mum) has gone off to bali for 3 weeks and I couldn't wait that long to get the hoists up so this was a solo mission. 

2 things I learnt:

how to tie a over hand loop Knott. 

I don't like hammer drilling into bricks. 

Thank you to all who recommended the hoists over wall brackets. Brackets would never have worked in the space. 

And a big thanks to Derek for all his tips and hints. It would have taken me 3 times longer to figure out the best way without them, and probably still adjusting things without the tip of joining the slings together to stop slippage. And also to use the loop Knott, how have I gotten this far without knowing that one???

 

If anyone wants more info, let me know. 

 

While I was at it I knocked up a rod rack too. :)

Cheers

Tara

Cheers mate. This is the first place I have lived in that I have this space so it's going to be decked out for sure. Rod rack cost me a whole $9 to make. Haha.

Good work Rah.  Old school  Hammer drills are the pits.  

 

I have been been thinking about a new bigger rod rack for ages.  Being a chippy you'd think I'd have it done by now.

Sorry mate. Wasn't sure how to rotate on my phone. Click on it and it goes right way up though. :P

Tell me about it. Dad came round to pick something up and said I could have gone and borrowed his corded one and would have been done in seconds. Ha ha

Problems solved eh Tara? Good onya! Might inspire me to do something about storage for my umpteen rods. Presently have 6 in a rod rack and the rest either in the boat or propped against the wall. How on earth did I end up with so many? Cheers, BN
