I am on edge.I won't have anyone around to help with the flip.I saw a guy on Iboats flip a glasser by himself.It can be done.

Ok, now before you jump down my back about the anti-fouling on the bottom I just want to say I contacted the mfgr and told them what it was I intended to do. They said it will be fine. I'll have to abrade it with a scotchbrite pad & recoat before it goes in the water. I did my homework on that point.[/rant]





The boat is horribly out of level from 3 yrs of sitting on cement blocks. I'll mark the waterline etc. once it's flipped and re-leveled.

There's a couple more pics on the the web log: http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2014/08/pics ... mised.html

Good job Rick.I knew there had to be a way to do the anti-foul without having to wait till the last minute.

I'm not sure anyone is bothered enough to "jump" on you, or anyone for that matter, for going against the advice given, After all, it's your boat to do as you please. That's one of the perks (amongst the many negatives) of building it yourself

I've learnt this site is about advice sharing. It's up to you to decipher what is relevant to your project, timeframe or budget.

I m all for going against the grain and looking outside the box for another way of doing something but I have learnt that a collective group of Experience like this site has, speaks volumes over a seller (and in some cases the manufacturer) of a product. No one here gets paid or receives a kickback from selling a product or has a vested interest in seeing a product work or fail. I have found most people on here (including me) provide advice or recommend a product because they have been down the same road or have used the product they recommended or have seen the downside to the way something is done.

Saying things like "So if you're going to get all huffy and tell me I have no idea what I'm doing that's fine, everyone's got an opinion and is entitled to it and I will assume you know more about this particular product than the mfgr does" really comes across poorly and makes people not want to help or contribute.

I tried to redact my comment but couldn't. I was just a little frustrated. I'd been torn a new one by a few so called experts on some other forums & Facebook by just mentioning putting it on this early. Not just once or twice but a couple dozen times (not on here though).

Started rigging up the Gin Pole. I updated our blog but to keep it short here it is in a nutshell.



6 X 6 to transfer weight to the ground. Rigging is almost all 1/2" hardware. Lifting power comes from a 2500lb 12V winch with 1/4" cable. Dragging the rolling frame sideways will be with a small hand winch like you find on a trailer.

I used 1/2" u-bolts. The upper one is for the load. The lower one is for the ratchet straps that'll hold the pole in place.



Rest of the details if you're interested are on our blog: http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2014/08/gin- ... gging.html

Bringing in the lumber to build the rolling frames this afternoon.

Standby.

Gin Pole went up a lot easier than I thought it would.



Used the electric winch I rigged into the ride of the shed to lift it into place. I thought it might be a two man job but managed it on my own. Just kept running from side to side as I lifted it a few feet at a time. Worked flawlessly.



Web log updated with a lot more pics & details: http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2014/08/lot- ... ought.html

Way to go Rick.That gin pole looks to be pretty substantial piece of wood.

Rick I'm amused by your expression "flip it".

Is that a way of making light of an operation that you consider daunting?

That would be the case w me. I built a 28' plywood boat and just got about 10 guys together and "flipped it". HaHa but it was very light.

Good luck and be safe.

Thanks for looking in Eric. I consider pretty much anything that has to be done to build this boat as 'daunting." Flipping it over is just 'nuther one of those lil' challenges to be bested. After much research and considering all my options this one seemed the best for turning it in a tight space. I was lucky to have found a builder who had done it this way so I followed his lead.

Boat Yard 26

It's so tight I don't think I could get 10 guys in the shed. But I could use Ben to come over, he can lay down on the floor so if it falls his body can cushion the blow!

Oh he'll be there. He made that clear. I didn't even have to offer food or medicine to lure him in either!

Installed the 2500 lb winch on the Gin Pole. Batteries for the remote were DOA so had to go running around for them as well as replacing the bench vise I broke.



Carpal tunnel is acting up. Might have to slow down a bit for a day or two.

I was running over the flipping scenario in my head over and over again last night, watching vids on Youtube, the animation I made and looking at a few blog sites when I realized I missed something really important. It took awhile but I figured it out.

Hey Rick.You could build a round corner on your framing, and let the weight of the hull roll itself over, while you let out the line and lower it back down.I've seen it done that way before.
