Got rid of the grubbing satellite providers a few months back. Since they don't remove the old dishes and mounts from my roof I took down the "dish" and a "directTV" crap and recycled the ugly things into something useful. Actually needed a stand for the little 5.5 Evinrude. A little field engineering with the welder....and it folds up for storage.

It was just one of those spur of the moment crazy things. Looking at them on the roof and thought of a stand. "I can do that" hits in conjunction with "why not?" Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Besides I needed my larger stand for a '50's Gale that I just bought off Craigslist. The bug bites again!

awesome idea ! always nice to reuse sh...tuff around the back 40 to be functional instead of recreating the wheel ?

Excellent idea! All that was left was the dish part.

First, do no harm!
It's a lot easier to buy a boat than sell a boat.(Stole this from a member!)
All that work and hardware store mailbox letters for the hull? Tsk tsk..

Love it! Still waiting for someone to make a real "Fender" from an auto salvage yard.
