Floaters sittin High DIY stands

Postby orangefoot » Thu Nov 13, 2008 5:16 pm

Ive heard of doing this to get those floaters up off the ground in dry fields so I found some small metal rod in the shop today and bent them into a slot so I could slide the keel in it. Works great. :thumbsup: Im goin to give them a try Saturday.

That might actually work. It is a great way to add to a spread.

I used that rod thats on the flower hangers that people put on graves. The ones that are put there temporaily. Its already green to help hide it also. :thumbsup:

How'd the bent posts work? That'd be a great way to expand the field spread without spending too much $$.
