Frank Cervi, VCB Board member at large, led the charge on a project to build 3 dollies and replace the axle on a fourth. The dollies serve as cradles for storage and wheels to roll gigs from the boathouse to the davit on the pier for launching. Here is rundown on assists…
Mackie Sang cut the hose lengths to fit over the “shoes”…and secured/ glued shoes to the dolly arm brace.
Deborah Clearman belt sanded the arm braces to a furniture quality finish.
John Volker assisted with chamfering, cutting axle wood, and mounting axle rode together.
Yim Lee assisted with sealing the axle wood and mounting prepping holes to receive eyebolts.
Loren Swarthout spliced and chamfered King Tide wood axle to receive the metal axle.
Frank Cervi mounted the dolly wheels and greased axles.
