Here is what I start'd with,, the boat was located 10 miles from our shop,, it took bout 5 miles fer the tongue ta give way and the last 5 miles left a 2" wide by 1" deep groove in the asphalt,, but we had drug it too far ta let this project sit on the side of the road...

PM this link to Jim. He has a thread going for completed projects, and has a small section for glass boats in there as well. Not a bad slab catcher. I see you replaced that old Chrysler with a Johnnyrude 3 cyl. Smart move. :D
