They're light and cheap (or free if you know of a kind farmer/unsecure barn ) and won't mark your hull......oh and when you've finished, you can feed them to your 'orse
"Hay Man" we don't all live in the deepest depths of Wales where bales of straw is as abundent as Pubs are around here. This is the concrete jungle around here

I guess hulls are hard old things at the end of the day and anything that stops scratching the bottom as your winching is good, carpet, thick carboard boxes, long grass etc etc... Is OK Olly.

So are those Seariders, I know of at least one that has been launched off the top of an ISO container and now back doing sterling service, infact Steve the new owner was down at the Church on Monday. Piece of carpet or several flattened cardboard boxes is all you will need.

When do we see the photos then

I guess the best way to stop to hull from being damaged is to launch it ot some thing soft that gives
