    Having tried (and failed) to make a decent stand for the Skipjack, I found this on eBay, and decided to give it a go.

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/330983211934?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

    It arrived in two days, and it's an amazing piece of kit, all laser cut, and everything fits perfectly. I added a fillet of thick superglue gel to the joints to make sure nothing falls off, and it's now rock solid, and supports the Skipjack in all directions, plus it's adjustable for all different sizes of boats.

    For twenty pounds and a fiver postage, you can't go wrong...I'm well pleased with mine.

    It is, mate..it will hold virtually any boat in complete safety...no chance of your boat falling out of it's stand in the back of the car.

    Very impressive piece of kit.
