The Beam, the deck, the whole boat for that matter. Scott Easom of Easom Rigging
shows off his latest creation, an indoor facility capable of lowering the boat keel into into the floor, providing a much more efficient method of working on the deck, cockpit etc!

Scott indicates that they can increase productivity by 50% but the biggest advantage is the safety of the boat workers, which have had a rash of accidents of late with workers falling off elevated hulls. The shop can handle boats up to 35' in length, but the height from keel bottom to cabin top must be under 11 feet to get in the door.

The Express 27 Peaches, shown here, has just gone under a complete new deck layout and modernization, which is becoming de rigueur for many of the 30 something year old Santa Cruz built boats, bring them a new life which will extend them for hopefully another 30 years!

My god that is cool. I'm working on an old boat in the water right now. No place to organize tools and materials, and two near MOBs already w/power tools in hand. The diametrically opposite way to work on a boat.
