    Here's me fussing with a minor detail. This canopy has a slight twist up, on the front right, and the springs on these latches won't take all the twist out...

    I've made springs for one of my RC Crawlers and had spring wire left over.

    Here's how to disassemble these latches...

    I found a screw with the right pitch and diameter. Then chucked it in a drill and wrapped a spring around it...

    The pencil is pointing to the original .015 wire diameter spring. Below it is the new spring made from .020 wire diameter...

    I built a second boat stand. Sometimes you don't get it right the first time. It's ok, that's part of designing something, it's why you have Revision A... and Rev B... and Rev C...

    Here's a link to a video on my second stand...
