ok we live on a lake where sliders arnt allowed... we built this 14 foot long table top but were not sure how to hide it.. its to heavy to take out everytime so does anyone have any advice on how to hide it...
also does anybody have any suggestions of easy sliders to build
I just put up a slide show on the slider we built out an old bost hull. It's fully trailerable. So you can take it with you of beach it. Maybe you can even paint it camo to blend with the beach or whatever. http://www.watercraven.com/Lakupoloza.htm
It holds up great when you slide. Not much rocking or swaying. We are still working on the anchoring. Right now I have got concrete blocks tied off the four corners of the boat. It drifts a little after a couple of hits, but it is easy to fix.
Eric, We have been having the same problem anchoring our slider. A friend of mine told me that you can keep your anchors from drifting by using a longer line. You should have 3feet of run for every 1foot of rise. If the water is 20 feet deep then use about 60 feet of rope.
guys here is what ive found with my rave slider.....i use regular rope on the anchors, but i use 3-5 ft of bungee at the "top" end of the rope that way i can sink the anchors deep and pull the rope tight but the bungee line lets it give to waves and wind and hitting the slider just enough so it doesnt uproot the slider try it
