At my turn I only had 6 people, a shop crane & a Ford F150. You talk about nerves! I got half way and the plan didn't work! My BIG friend came to the rescue with his truck and logging chain!

You know, sharing it is a big part of the event! My big friend says that is one of the coolest things that he has ever done.

Anyone in my general area let me know. I'll try to come.

Well it was nice to have all the people. Funny thing was the people I asked to help must have also asked other people, so I only knew a little over half of the helpers, the rest are new friends :lol:

Allright!!!!
What a big day.
I flipped with me & Stu. I went to local tire store and loaded up used tires. Me & Stu jacked it up until it was at the 'tipping point' and let go over on stacks of tires.
'Phloooop!"
And it was over!

Letting her fly was my original plan but I thought it might break the skeg so I went with the controlled chaos.

:lol: I think you made a good choice. You really don't want something that big getting away from you. Ken didn't just let it go. He was tied off to a jeep. It's a real head scratcher on how to do it with what you have. The Tahoe, I did by my self in slings in the basement (by accident). The Bartender had to go outside.

As it went over, the jeep didnt do anything...............I had to give it some incentive to 'go on over'

This is a beautiful boat coming along nicely. You don't see many boats on here being done with a skeg and it looks awesome.

I hope that you are still progressing and would love to see some updated pictures.

Regards,
Sean

This winter was very cold so not much got done. I am ready to install engine, but a fall at work a some fractured bones in my back has put everything on hold. As soon as I can get back at it, I'll post pics

I guess it has been to long since the last update. The last few times I tried, when I hit submit it would erase everything I typed and tell me to sign in again. Here are a few pics. I just finished painting the hull and now I'm going to start hooking up all the mechanical stuff. My little helper is in one of the pictures. I used pettit easypoxy for the sides pettit vivid for the bottom (this will have to be touched up) and interlux brightsides for the stripe.
