Your boat is looking awesome, but man, you gotta feed our boat porn addiction more frequently.  It’s not fair to wait so long between posts.  I was getting the shakes.

Lol, I was just thinking the same thing! Looking great!

I'll get those post up more frequently. I am currently looking for an indoor work space up here so I can get this thing on the water ASAP.

Thanks for the kind words gents. Here was Friday's special delivery from Eugene Son. I had to take a shot of it in position, and I did promise some  more frequent boat porn.

Happy Halloween gents. Today was a big one. I got some serious help this morning. Spent the weekend before last assembling a cradle for the hull to sit on upside down, and this morning we flipped her. With the cradle, the package was right at 2200 lbs. That should put the hull right at about 1900 or thereabouts.

Kind of went cheap on the crane didn't you? :roll:

Over the years we have seen various ways to flip a hull, including the use of industrial strength equipment but I can't recall any quite so large.

Excellent! :great02:

The OSHA safety equipment is a nice touch.

I can honestly say I've never seen any of our members wearing a safety vest while working on their hull.

Flip Flops yes.
Hard Hat, no. :thumright:

Safety third as they say. A 200 ton crane may have been a little much, but there is no kill like overkill. The company my stepdad works for was working less than a mile from the house. It would have been dumb for me not to have these guys help. Super good dudes, and now I owe them a fishing trip.

Yup, they took all the fun and adventure out of flipping a boat.

Sunny days are here again. I took the hull out to the local sandblasting outfit to have the bottom paint and waterline removed. It was the best money spent on this project so far. I am sure my neighbors would thank me if they know what the alternative was. The sandblasting exposed a couple minor spots that needed attention, but nothing major. I'll get some pictures as I begin to tackle them. Next steps are to complete the exterior half of the patches where the old running gear, thru-hulls and rudder assembly went through the hull. Paint is so close I can smell the fumes.
