    I want to make a PVC stand for by Spartan.

    Does anyone have a link to a build that gives dimensions?

    I built my boat stands based on this.... I modified mine for my Spartan and also worked for my catamaran hulls.

    Hope this helps.....

    They must have changed something, I don't use the fightercat forum much anymore so didn't notice the change.

    After I read your response to the link I tried it and had to log on to view it myself. So I guess you may need to register with them to view it.

    No big deal to register and they do have some good tips on rc boating.....If you don't wish to register maybe I can copy the information and attach the general specs to ya.

    Or you can try a search for rc boat stands.

    Yes, but longer.

    Do I just measure the boat and make plans like that? Approximately how many feet of PVC do I need?

    I made this one, so I could easily carry my Spartan around; and I can also do, my field maintenance with it. When I'm working on my boat at my home bench, I have another stand without any handles. If I ever needed though, the handles on this one are removable.



    This is the one I use on my bench, and for storing my boat.

    This is what I built for the "Blu By U" Spartan.. And a red one for the Red Spartan...



    And the boat trailer doubles as a boat stand as well...

    I like your sticker idea. I'm going to do that. Also, you can super glue the pipe insulation, if you want to get rid of your cable ties. I see your dirt bike...pretty nice. I have a YZ250...they are a lot of fun aren't they?

    The insulation for the boat is glued at the seams and the ones for the frame are not there anymore.. I glued nylon bumpers instead just to keep it from sliding around and scratching the paint.

    That bike is for my 12 year old grandson and he loves it..... I don't ride off road dirt bikes anymore.... At my age it hurts too much when I soil sample . I have the mind of a younger person and just want to go fast and now it hurts when I bail . For my off road pleasure I drive this... I get the rush without the pain. Turbo powered @ 10 lbs of boost.

    Orca, very nice stand. That's what I'm looking to build. Do you have dimensions of the pieces you cut?

    Well here it goes for those that wanted the specs for a boat stand. Can be built for Catamaran & V hulls. Ref: The stand in post #9.


    PVC Boat Stand For Catamaran and V Hulls

    Supplies:
    1 piece of 10' PVC 1/2" pipe
    1 piece of 6' pipe insulation for 1/2" pipe
    4 ea 1/2" joining T fittings
    8 ea 1/2" 90 degree fittrings
    1 can of PVC pipe cement (primer optional, but not necessary)
    some medium zip ties

    Tools:
    A method/device for cutting PVC pipe accurately. I used a pvc cutting tool but a hack saw will work.
    Some medium grit sandpaper to scuff pipe and fittings
    A sharp knife or large scissors for cutting the PVC Pipe Insulation
    A measuring tape and marking utensil

    Instructions:
    Cut four 20" long sections out of the PVC pipe, then cut the following:
    4 ea @ 2" Sections
    4 ea @ 1.75" Sections
    2 ea @ 1.5" Sections.... optional for V Hulls use 3.5 inch sections
    Cut four 18" sections of the Pipe Insulation

    Do a dry fit first! Make sure all pieces fit together and it lays flat on the table.
    Assemble/cement one piece at a time, using the 2 ea 1.5" sections join the center T's, the 1.75" sections to join the vertical risers and install 4 of the 90 degree fittings on top. The 2" pieces to join the outer supports with the other 4 90 degree fittings.
    Install the 4 ea 20 inch pvc lengths to complete the bottom of the frame and the boat supports.

    Optionally for a V Hull, lengthen the center joining PVC Pieces (1.5") to 3.5" to allow the hull to sit in between the padded supports.

    Paint as you wish or leave white.

    Install the padding on the PVC and zip tie or glue in place.
