Your paint work looks great, looking forward to seeing more.

Bryan, glad to hear your wife is doing better. I can just imagine how stressful that is.

The red looks great on the boat. It's been great to see your boat progress over the years. You're getting there. Keep plugging away.

Thanks Roberta, Peter, Carl and Carl for your thoughts on Lisa. It's been almost three years since her last major health issue and she is great.

DrBryan,
Whew, I just finished your thread! The boat looks beautiful and I've really enjoyed my time reading it tonight and not watching "The Great British Baking Show" that seems to monopolize our TV every evening. :wink:

I'm in the very early "design" stages but I recognize a lot of the issues I'm thinking about now from the early pages of your thread. It has been an enjoyable read and if you still have access to those classic Donzi plans, I'd be interested in taking a peek at them at some point.

Looking forward to the updates.
-Brandon

Re: best type carpet for boat cradle

Post by DrBryanJ » Thu Nov 01, 2018 10:02 am

I have my cradle built for the flip. I plan on flipping her Thanksgiving weekend. I need to cover the supports with carpet. Does it matter what type I use or just get any remnant I can find? It will stay inside during the remainder of the build. Should I order bunk carpet?

I used indoor/outdoor carpet from Home Depot. It's cheap and works just fine. 20 bucks worth should be enough.

That's what I used as well. It's fine. . I also added the black foam insulation normally used for pipes. I put it under the carpet on the cradle that my boat is currently resting on.

After over 6 yrs, the plan is to flip her on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. I have the cradle built. I just need to finish the color sanding and buffing. Should have that done this weekend. Anyone in the area is welcome to come. I will have beer and most likely pizza.

Hey Bryan, no pillows, mattresses, rollover cradle, needed. All you have to do is flip it over into a snow drift! :lol: :lol:

Good luck, a bit too far for me to drive but I'll be there in spirit. Drink a pint for me.

Dr. B,
Cool stuff, have fun. Malahini is an easy flip with 4 or 5 fellows.
