So, what happened to you young fellas looking after us op punks flipping a hull huh?
lol, ya did well with winching up the front pointy end LaMont thank you!
Was to have the shed up by now, seems all our debitors took off for their break with our money!
And as we're into that 30 -40 deg C heat theres no chance of working on the etc with a mock up of it all.

So as we are setting up another income stream in the new year, again it'll be slow progress. Good thing is, I'll be making sure there is a spot for the boat inside the building.

As long as you keep up the progress now and then ...it'll get done :)  Do a little something everyday, even if it's just design and planning....

It was nice being able to actually see one up close. Keep moving forward so I have an "excuse" to come back to Perth.

Flipping the hull over
« Reply #206 on: November 19, 2017, 03:05:36 AM »
A year ago Sayswho came over to Perth to help flip the hull.
I have made a few mod's, as a boat builder no problem, and as a boat builder of old flipping the hull is done anyway that's handy. Just get it done and deal with issues as they arise.

Oops.............

Here's a link to a vid my son took of the process.

Hahaaa!!  What do you call THAT maneuver?  A two-step quicky and a Bosanova?   You did a pretty good job at staying upright right up until the bush plunge!

The boat's looking great, BTW!

There are more than one way to get your ass kicked!
