Up side down

Had some friends over today to help me flip the boat. She felt heavier than I expected but went over quite easily, it was all over within 5 minutes.

The flipping crew. Thanks for the help guys!

Did not have time to take any pictures during the process but this is the end result.

The next step was to adjust the length of the beams, fit sliding supports and some supporting blocks.

Sliding supports forward and aft and a block on the middle beam to match the sheer curve

Sliding support

Ready to start working on the boat again

The rest of the evening was spent scraping of excess epoxy (heat gun and a scraper) and cleaning up and sanding some of the less successful scarfs.

Time today: 4h (That is not including all the discussing and explaining with the flipping crew!)
