The building jig has some special considerations, given the constraints on the workspace. Crestline is gracious enough to provide building space and technical expertise in building the trailer, but can't guarantee a fixed location within the building. After all, the space is under construction as their powdercoat facility. Still, the demands of creating a mobile building jig make for some challenges. The basic plan is to take a leftover 16-foot pallet (Crestline gets pallet-loads of 16-foot aluminum sheets) and sheet it top and bottom with leftover MDF (protective underlay from the CNC router tables). That, in combination with some 2x10's or similar on edge should create a rigid platform on which to mount the jig. And with luck, we won't have to move until the hull is sheeted in!
