Trike Shelter at the Airport

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
As noted previously, it turned out not to be practical for me to break down the wing and take the Mallard home every time.This resulted in the trike sitting tied down outside for some number of weeks after I got it.

The fastest way to get a viable temporary shelter for it with things I had on hand was to take a 50 foot long, 10 foot wide van box I had and use it as secured storage and a sidewall for a "arched lean-to" using heavy duty deep ribbed Quonset hut type panels I had.  Six panels end to end are half a full arch and come out with about 50 feet of total width and enough height for the trike's king post to clear.

I got emergency town council approval to put this temporary shelter up with an application for leasing the property it is on at the same time.  I have 26 feet of the intended 50 feet of length up.  I have hung tarps at the ends to reduce the wind blowing through and sun exposure early and late in the day.  It is in this partial state as I still don't have a signed lease back from the town.

Once complete it should be able to shelter 3 or 4 trikes.
