Wow! That is amazing!!

Did you use that gantry to lift the stern up as well. I'm about to lift my boat a similar way. I would like to see more pics of how you get her on the trailer, you have skills and nerves of steel.

I love the fair curves around the hatches. Is that all glassed in? Looks really good and professional like you might have made a mold and vacuum bagged it to the form.

I figured those were store bought hatches but if they are homemade I'm really impressed. Of course I'm impressed with the boat in general!

Hi. No, I did not use the gantry. I used a hyd. jack to lift the boat up enough to put the dollies under. I took the hull outside to turn it over and I used the same dollies for that, so they were under the hull already, just had to lift enough to get the blocking out. The hatch doors are 1/2 inch plywood and the frame around is 3/4 inch ply set back 1/2 inch to put a 1/4 inch x 1/2 inch foam weather gasket all around. All is fiberglassed and filled and lots of sanding.Thanks Don

Wow, those hatches were a LOT of work no doubt. Awesome boat!
