Great lines on the planking!

Bottom paint, boot stripe and varnish done. Fun to see that mahogany color and finish pop out with the varnish. Now building dolly in prep for the flip. Need to peel off that masking tape for better pictures lol.

Dollies done. About $100 in lumber and 4 harbor freight 1000lb furniture dollies.
Now the flipping engineering begins. Leaning towards the jamundsen method.

The flipping will be fun (and a bit stressful as well) but you will feel really great during that event and especially afterwards. It's a significant milestone. Congratulations on getting this far in the build.

I'm sure you have been told this already but the boat really grows after you flip it. I was really nervous before the flip but it went really well.

Flip now complete. (more like a roll lol) No casualties.
Stared at it for an hour today not knowing where to start. Goal for last 3 years has been to get it to this point so haven't given much thought to the game plan going forward. Looks bigger right side up!

Congrats on the flip. It looks great up side up.

You're wise to step back and get a plan together. The top sides are a different beast, not hard, but different than building the frame and bottom.

Enjoy the journey!

Congrats :!:

You may want to make steps from the building form. You are going to climb in and out thousands of times.

well done on the flip. She looks beautiful and will be a worthy addition to the growing list of woodies coming from this forum. Looking forward to seeing more progress on her.
