HELP! Large Wood Piers new
      #3677095 - 03/12/10 04:31 PM

Large wood portable piers.

I've seen some pictures but can't find them with the search option.

Anyone know the whereabouts of pictures of LARGE wood piers.

Andy:

Thanks! I'm looking at them right now. I have also zoomed in on your beautiful pier and I just don't know if I have the skills left to build a beauty like yours and the ones in the link above.

I haven't had much luck building a metal pier. I keep getting started and then just "loose my way" I guess. I started with an AP pier I was going to extend, then a nice 6" aluminum tube. Now I really am thinking that something like these would be great at home and could be setup remotely.

Thanks for the link. I'll let you know (if) I can decide what I am going to do.

My pier is not so portable, it is too heavy, but it is fine to roll out of the garage on it's wheels.

This is a smaller version.
