That looks great! Nicely done. Your hull is smooth, great lines. I see why you would paint the topsides after the flip, you still have a lot of work to fair the deck structure and install the deck itself, doing the final paint afterward makes more sense. Keep up the great work, I'm taking notes :D

I agree. Do below the waterline now. Wait to do the topsides later. There are too many messes to make before you need to do that!

The boat is flipped!!

Didn't have a flippin party, just me and my 12 yr old daughter! Went pretty well; however, you can probably tell from the photos, the center of gravity made the flip happen pretty quick! It actually swung like a porch swing for a bit! Anyway, all the rigging held and we safely lowered it into its cradle.

AWESOME! Looks great. Well done on the two person flip.
I cut twice and it's still too short :mrgreen:

Yep, when my flip started to go past vertical it needed a line to control the swing through. Doing a solo flip is a badge of honor for sure but scary with all that hard work dangling in the air.
Congratulation, now for the best part of the build.

I flipped the Tahoe about the same way by myself. I used a series of rope loop and pullies from the ceiling. And yes! Right at the end it flipped itself! :lol: :wink:

Wow! Clever method to flip it. The lines of your hull look great! This should be lots of fun finishing the deck and interior.

Thanks! My daughter has been a big help, and I've enjoyed working with her on this project!

I'm excited about starting the topside; I'm ready to start cutting wood again! Below is another pic!
