Been there definitely! I hated the feeling of the boat on blocks of wood and jack stands. Freaked me out every time I went out into the garage, too!

Looks great though!

Well, I know of a few idiots that would!

we put new skids on it. we used 2x6s this time. to hopefully give it some more surface area to sit on. Also we found the culprit, it was a bolt on the skid that wasn't counter sunk. also it wasn't a regular bolt and not a round headed one.

another interesting thing i found was the boat doesn't sit on the entire skid. It only sits on about 3 feet of 11 foot skid. I need to take a picture of bad bolt and show everyone.

Sounds like it's time to do some adjusting.
