Could it be mounted to the side of the lift pole?
Great read and photos by the way. Thanks for sharing.

This morning I finished Friggin' with my Riggin'! I bought a 1' section of 5/16" chain to hang the pulley block from. Worked perfectly. Replaced the hook with two 5/16" Quick Links and it now has freedom of movement needed.



Also finished up the last beam on the turning frames.



So that's it. Turning frame & rigging is DONE! Next step is the dissembly of the strongback & forms so I can lower the hull & turning frames to the floor.

More pics etc. on the web log. http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2014/08/done ... iggin.html

what a project...I build many a things in my days from my first skooter when I was 7 years old to gyro copters and fixed wing planes. But a boat inside a make shift tent under 10 feet of snow would stretch my imagination to the limits.
You can be very proud of your accomplishment

So I got friends out there on the Interwebs. Friends who know stuff I don't. Thank the Heavenly Boat Maker!

Last iteration (I hope).



What I failed to recognize is that the cable end hook and the pulley block will rotate upwards and outwards away from the pole as the hull rotates. The cable hook will go almost (if not over) 90 degs outwards and the pulley block will move outwards about 45 degs.

I thought you were taking that into account when you re-rigged everything.I know never ass-u-me anything.

Just to let you guys know you're not the only one following this build. I'm a fan of the stich and glue method and I want to build something similar, the 23' houseboat at Bateau. Keep up the good work and please don't stop posting the great pics.Larry in Virginia.

Spent most of the day ripping out the remainder of the strongback frame. There was carnage everywhere!



I was just cuttin' and sawin' and hammerin' and unscrewin' and tossin' the stuff out from under the boat!



The hull is now resting comfortably in her rolling frames on the ground!



Web log updated with more details and a video walk around of the boat I did this morning. http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2014/09/carn ... -shed.html

Cheers!!!

That's it. It's rigged to roll over. Trying to put together a crew for Saturday. Other than some housekeeping there's not much else I can do now. It's going over come hell or high water!

Ground anchors are in & straps attached. I couldn't get the one on the right down any further, hit rock.



Couldn't resist the urge and lifted the hull with the winch. It worked perfectly. No moans or groans or cracking. The Gin Pole was rock solid and never flexed at all.



Suspended on the winch. I left it there for 5 mins with no problem.

There will be ritual offerings of Tobacco to Ha Wen Neyu (The Great Spirit) and Deganawida (The Great Peacemaker).

And most likely ritual offerings of Rum (for medicinal purposes to calm the nerves) for me!

This morning was just some housekeeping tasks. Tomorrow I likely won't get anything done, taking the kid to the airport for his next big adventure in Alberta!

Through the wormhole!


Battery for winch getting charged!


Screwed these 2X6's to the bench. If the frame wants to come down on it they'll redirect it to the floor.


Last look. I'll remove the shed doors before the flip so we'll get a better view as it goes over.


I'm scared shitless!
