We've got some bad weather headed this way for tomorrow morning so I'm going to postpone the flip. I would need people outside the shed to handle tag lines etc. and I can't really ask them to do it standing in the rain. Will try again for next weekend. Sorry.

Gotta keep the free help comfortable or they will bail out.

Got a crew together for Saturday morning. Weather is a little iffy with some light rain. I'm going for it anyways.

Here's basically how it'll happen.

Hull flipping day! A little more than 2 hrs and it'll be going over. Guts are in a knot. Shouldn't have had nacho's with jalapenos last night.

GoPro's charged up & ready to go. Sipping my last coffee & waiting for the team to arrive.

It's done! Went pretty much as planned. A few minor hiccups but the boat is unharmed and everyone is safe. Had plenty of help. More details later on the blog update.



I need RUM!

Here's the edited video. Probably took us an hour and a half to flip it. I edited out most of the ponderin' time and jockeying it sideways. The excitement (boom crash) doesn't happen till just after the 6 minute mark. The only casualties were one 2X3 and a pair of undershorts!



Few more pics & details on the blog update: http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2014/09/hull ... s-pie.html

Way to go, Rick. Thanks for sharing. It looks as if it went as well as it could go. You are a gutsy guy, and it is great following along on you build. I am certainly learning a few things.

Great job Rick. It's great following people with skill sets way beyond my own.

I am surprised by the flex in the hull.Will you need to check the hull for twist along the length?That was a nail bitter.

It'll get leveled & squared up in the spring. I have to build some supports or get some proper boat stands this winter. The baseline is marked inside the hull so it's easy to level with the laser.

Yeah, at this stage the hull is still pretty floppy. It's strong but being so long it moved a lot and I expected that. She's going to be one tough little boat!

Thanks bluebyu

Slept like a rock last night for the first time in a couple of weeks. I'm usually an early bird, 04:00 every morning but slept in till 06:30 today!

I have no skills dimer! I make this sh*t up as I go along!

Actually I researched the crap out of it before I started to plan it out. My buddy Greg is an industrial electrician and does a lot of rigging & hoisting in his line of work so that was a great help.

Thanks for following along Moonstruck. I hope someone learns from my mistakes. I'm just glad I'll never have to do that again!

Indeed a big success. Congratulations


Naked hulls are always flexible. They are just the waterproof skin as they have none of the internal supports that give them structural rigidity such as stringers, frames and bulkheads and decks.

Managed to get my GoPro up on a stick to get a birds eye view!





The funny colored stuff on the port side forward is just left over epoxy glue I had that I used to fill the kerfs in the panel. You'll notice the other side doesn't have kerfs. The panels were cut wrong and the kerfs were on the outside. This caused a few problems but it seems to have worked out ok.

That hallow keel looks like it's going to be a big pain in the stern to vacuum bag.
