Got that covered Ben. Still have to get it up past 45 degs for gravity to take over. I think we'll just have 'nuff to do it. If not I'll wedge Peter under there with a 2 x 4 to prop it up!

Starting to assemble the rolling frames around the hull. It's going together pretty much as I figured it would.





The forward most frame will be a bit more involved. It doesn't fall on a form so I'll have to build one in as I go. A lil' wee lunch break then back at it.

How much is a round trip ticket from South Carolina to your boat shed?

Are you planning to leave the rolling frames in place while your lay in the bulk heads and stringers?

Winter is fast approaching. You might want to stay where it's nice and warm!

A vacuum pump eh? Nice. Is that for your project?

Yup. That'll be pretty much the only thing holding it upright until I can get some decent boat stands (bought or made).

Hey Ben.

I'll call your vacuum pump!



And raise you one vacuum generator!

I took out a huge raccoon with the front of my Cavalier, when I was in the mountains.Pushed the AC condenser back into the radiator and cracked the core.It also bent the front tie bar,broke the lower air damn,trashed the bumper,corner marker light,and busted the rubber out of the lower engine stabilizer.It was a bloody mess all under my car.The vacuum pump is to pull a vacuum on the AC system to remove any humidity that made it in while replacing the condenser.I'm also replacing the accumulator,all O rings,compressor,and orifice tube.Just about a whole new AC system.I can also check for leaks with the vacuum pump.Pull vacuum and shut off the manifold gauge valves and let it sit for 30 minutes.If it looses vacuum,I have a leak and have to fix it.I may use the VP to make some parts for my boat and my motorcycles.

I like DIY cradles to hold the hull in position while everything is being glassed in.My boat,being built on frames,I'll probably knock together some square wood blocks to hold it up off the ground.It's going to have a nearly flat bottom except the first 1/4 will be a V entry bow.

Oh yeah,my car was built in Canada,and that's where most of the replacement parts were either made or purchased from.

Been dealing with a sick cat (four legged furry kind) for the last few days so not much got done in the boat shed.

M/V She:Kon: Cat Emergency

Thanks for looking in.

Thanks Ben. I think she's turned the corner to recovery. Little shit!

More rolling frames today. Hotter 'n Hell in the shed. I keep waiting for this Polar Vortex thing to happen.

Gettin' there, slowly but surely. The frames are almost done. I need some more 2X6's for the longitudinal braces. Will pick those up tomorrow. Will also have to take a quick trip to Princess Auto for some of the rigging I'll need to pull this thing over. Decided to go way over capacity of a few things just to be sure.



Started to disassemble some of the strongback that we put together 3 yrs & 1 week ago!

Installed the longitudinal beams (if that's what you can call them). These will take the pull when I start to turn the hull. I increased them to 2X6's, screwed & bolted to the turning frames.



Three sides of the lifting frame will get pulled on during the flip so I'll rig all three the same.



The more I get into this the more I realize I know nothing about what I'm doing! Should have paid more attention in those engineering classes in college.

Yup, she's on the mend. One boat unit ($1K) later. Haven't heard from Peter. I know he's got some stuff on his plate but he'll be there if he can.

Increased the capacity of some of the lifting rig. Pulley blocks are 8 Ton and the cable winch is 2 ton. I'll use the cable winch if the electric one proves it's not up to the task (worried about it not being able to hold the weight).



37 C or 99F in the boat shed at noon. No work in there today.

The list of stuff on my 'End of Boat Project' yard sale is getting longer!

Was doing some more Friggin' with the Riggin' again today. The 8 ton pulley blocks I got aren't exactly ideal for this situation so there'll be some more 'Backyard Eyeball Engineering' going on!



I think the correct Engineering term for the picture above is 'Cluster F*ck!'. Yup, that's right. Nailed that one right on the head!

Got more ponderin' to do on how to fix that mess.
