My next step was to give myself enough room in the garage to put the whole boat in there and still be able to shut the door with the motor mounted = swing away tongue. The Foynes Flying Boat Museum is housed in the original terminal building and recalls that nostalgic era when Foynes became the centre of the aviation world between 1937 and 1945. Open Daily mid Mar-Nov 9am-5pm (last admission 4pm), other times for groups by pre-booking. I needed to replace the 3.5 ft bunks with 7 foot bunks to take the weight off of the front roller. I plan to cover all this with plywood and carpet, but for now, heres what I've got.I propped the control box up there to see about where its going to go.


I didn't want to have to call the neighbors everytime I had to lift this 355 lb boat, so I ran steel cables up through the ceiling into the attic.
Then within a couple weeks, I bought the 1981 40 HP Merc from him and built a stand to put it on. I wanted to be able to work on the motor without having to pull out the whole boat everytime to work on it. So this way I can do the carb rebuild, lower unit fluid flush, and whatever else needs to be done without having to move the boat everytime. So each rafter would have even less weight on it than me (6'4" 235 lbs) standing up there.


I pulled the trailer out, replaced the bunks, wires, and lights, and wheeled it back in when I was done.
