IOM Stand

Camping stool?

Hell, this is IOM, we need some carbon fibre, stainless steel,
unobtanium, one of a kind, british made, aussie designed, NASA
sourced boat stands.

Don't you read sailing anarchy?

If thats the case, just get a britpop, cut.the deck off, make a hole in the bottom for keel to go through and you have yourself some high tec equipment.

Please note, this method will only work for those with strange narrow boats.

I think the best boat stand is the water

Stands

Yeah - that's what I'm talking about
I love the little S bend to clear the front bulb

Reminds me of the guys working the outage at the local
nuclear power plant.

They replaced some Nuc grade stainless steam piping;
welded up and polished some awsome BBQ grills.

I think the camp stool they are talking about is a camp table. Here is a link to one I use:

http://www.rei.com/product/765281/rei-camp-end-table

Major feature is a place to put your Beer and tools.
