PROJECT SAS WILDEHOND III: Join us!
« on: September 26, 2017, 03:41:44 pm »
Hi all Dogs,

There was a discussion over here http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=188535.msg3906785#msg3906785, and it was decided that it's time to retire SAS Wildehond II.

Over the next few months, there will be discussions and plans and we hope everyone who's benefited from the previous SAS Wildehonde, or hoping to use it in future, would participate.

So far, the plan is to build the SAS Wildehond III, take it apart, transport it to it's final resting place, and put it together again. There will most likely be braai and some partying, with maybe some excellent riding thrown in (DesmoDirt mentioned some "secret route(s)"  :ricky: )

If you would like to contribute, you can donate here (also see my signature):

Bank account details:
Name: R Snyman
Number: 1545860511
Type: Capitec Savings Account
Code: 470010
Reference: SAS Wildehond III

Or get in touch with DesmoDirt or Dux to offer material assistance.

See you at the build party  :biggrin:

Ok , I could do with a bit of assistance , could anyone with an 1150GS kitted with panniers please pay me a visit so I can take measurements for the raft , I presume I am correct in assuming that would be the largest of the adventure bikes out there , so my line of thought is that if it can handle this then it can handle any bike .

1150GSA if you want to account for the weight. Quite a difference. And heavier than the 1200GSA and only little bit lighter than a XT1200.

A F'ugly is a different sort of bike, the 1150 is boring and the 1100s makes me smile.

For a fully loaded 1150GS Adv, I suspect you would need an aircraft carrier  ;)

I crossed there earlier this year. I forget the youngster's name that lives there, but he was fantastically helpful. He was still rubbing the Sunday arvie "skyns le tyd" out of his eyes when he came to help.

Wouldn't mind camping there for a night - nice location!

Must admit, I was a bit nervous putting the ol AT on the raft, but it got across ok. The pontoons were really stuffed though, and I did fear that it wouldn't make it across before sinking.

I think the idea of mounting the pontoons above the deck could work, and would definitely keep them more out of harms way. They'd have to be pretty bouyant to ensure that the deck doesn't sink too far under the surface though.

Fantastic initiative guys and girls!

Why not use 4 x 220l rust treated oil drums as pontoons? Oil drums will survive the sun better than plastic pontoons. Mount the pontoons above the deck level as mentioned. Sure the deck will sink a few cm below surface but the raft will be very stable.

Here is a rough sketch that could work. The dimensions are just schematic of course.
