Hi Theran,
Thanks for your comment. As you could probably tell, I'm not the most tech savvy fella so I'm not sure what I didn't do right but glad it worked on your PC. Perhaps it's a forum issue as I uploaded it from my PC via the upload video drop down box??!

Cheers again for your comments ;-)

Hi mate
Thanks for your comments! The only thing wrong with having a clean motor is the work to maintain it looking good. I can see this becoming a pain in the arse very quickly :-)

- Simple Green (bio degradable, even safe to ingest) - 5% SG to water in small garden sprayer, higher concentration for tough stain spots oil/fuel/grease...
- Spray-mist area - Let set for a minute
- Long bristle brush - Light scrubbing
- Rinse - Water
- Helps keep bilge clean too!
- Repeat as needed!

been thinking about the hull and doing the epoxy fillets etc and ive decided to filp the boat (Which i should have originally done) finish building the hull, epoxy coat it and epoxy fillet it, more epoxy coating, sand, fair and paint then flip back. Cant do a good job upside down!

any tips on flipping a boat like mine? all i can see on the web is little dory type skiffs and small boats that two people flip over on tyres. Not really an option for me. Might need to hire a crane!

Crane or good quality all terrain forklift like what used on most job sites around here. The kind with the crane style booms and front stabilizing landing gear. Just rented a crane for my neighbors hot tub 3 weeks ago for $300 US. Cheap for a job well done.

A little rigging ingenuity, some tires, chain falls along with a cooler full of beer to attract some helpers and ya might be surprised what you can do.

Might cost a bit to get a crane out there, if someone nearby is doing building work with a crane it might soften the blow. You`ve too much invested to take any risks turning her over.
A while back a neighbor wanted to crane in an outdoor spa bath using my driveway. I had conditions, too many. A day later local news had photos of a crane (not on his job but same crane co.), on its side, jib neatly bisecting a house. So, no cowboys.

Met a guy out there this arvo for a quote. He said it'll take two cranes one hour to flip it. should cost around $400.00

I booked him in for Thursday morning at 0700hrs.

It should make sealing, glassing and epoxying the hull a hell of a lot easier.

Portuguese have any tips for Hendo...? He did this with his boat hull not long ago. Suggest you pm him Hendo if he does not chime in soon.

Well I went down today and took all the tarps and poly sheeting and installed more bracing and made it as strong as a rock ready for tomorrow's flipping exercise. Fingers crossed she doesn't fall to bits when they lift and flip.

Hi all,
Well today Axe was flipped. Was a tense moment when she hung from two points but the boat is very strong and didnt creak, groan or crack. Really happy with how strong she is atm. She tipped the scales at 2 tonne. My estimates are that she will come out to around 10 tonne when finished, not including people or carry on items etc.

Really impressed and happy with the work so far. Shes one strong girl IMHO

Please see below for a couple of videos and some pics i took today

Cheers
Matt

Well done. Another good thing. This will have been a good dress rehearsal for when she has to be flipped back, also.
