    Shore Stand Question

    Hey All,

    Have a dumb question about building a PVC shore stand. I'm going to the river next weekend and wanted build one just to keep my Spark (3 up) off the sand at night when the water level is down.

    Everything I read says use 3" PVC, problem is there seems to be no 3" PVC to be found here in sunny SoCal. I would use ABS, but it's 3 time the price.

    My question is, just for a shore stand in water, would 2" PVC support the weight of a 3up Spark?

    Thoughts and opinions welcomed.

    Thanks.

    Thought about the 2 X 4's but didn't want the damn things floating away when the Spark wasn't on it.

    I know people who lifted their watercrafts onto these. They're usually easy to find near the dock/beach...

    Beach Stand

    These are the type we mostly use. Strong, lightweight (aluminium) and portable... worth the investment.

    Usually about $160.00 US, although during World Finals in Havasu and other PWC events you can get them cheaper ...

    I had a local guy making copies of them and he was selling them for $110.00 . Easy to copy if you got a guy good at welding and bending aluminium ...

    Nice, but not quite as cheap as PVC. Although the portability of it is VERY cool.

    As a plumber in texas i think you can find 3 inch pipe . Your looking in the wong places .
    Try a plumbing parts house

    about five inches down towards bottom use a coulping and dont glue , use a long screw with washers .
    so you can pull apart to transport .

    You might even be able to use wingnuts for quicker, easier takedown.
