Which is too bad because I either wanted to see a report back on how it worked or that the repairs ended up costing more doing it the cheap way rather than the right way to start with.

After a couple requests for pics & no response I put op in the " pro moocher " list. I might have made an error about his persona but don't think so.

Last thought, how about 2 large floor jacks each on a 2x12 board. Lift the front at the same time theh have some winch or pull back slowly.

***The physics of a well oiled sanded board seem sound. If it slides well it's not going to bend the jacks. I'm going to go with this method.***
This was OP last post. However after snarky comments I would bet he moved on to a friendlier website. He's gone through a hurricane which has left him and his in a bad situation all around.
At some point mods/adm IMO should close a thread like this where the OP doesn't respond, as it seems the longer one is open the nastier comments are made in many cases.
